Tearing down historic buildings is an easy solution to the much broader problem of local governments failing to offer significant perks for people to buy and restore them. When historic buildings are structurally sound, local governments should offer tax breaks and grants to people who are willing to restore them. Not only does this save the buildings, it also encourages urban renewal.
By erasing these historic building we are harming the city, without the unique architecture like this the cities start to look exactly alike. Every country or city has its own unique architectural style or building without these they are just places with no historic value at all. Please all opinions are valued.
