Wow. A great read. And most of you want to tear this thing down and build a stadium? The inside looks like it's in great shape! So many things can be done.

I've heard the word 'visionary' being thrown around on the RTH site. Building a stadium on a harbourfront close to a downtown is not visionary... it's been done before many times (Cleveland, Pittsburgh, just to name a few).

Reusing this Rheem building in a creative and effective way... THAT'S VISIONARY.

Examples: an indoor playground or climbing walls (as has been stated)...a less informal art gallery (more like an art expo) to complement the James North Art District...a convention/banquet hall...or (my preference) something like the Forks Market in Winnipeg
