Full Shot of Space



I recently became interested in researching the history of abandonded spaces around Baltimore. This interest led me to this space in Greektown. I was astonished that a space like this hadn't been restored and utilized yet. The structure of the building is amazing and holds information to the history of this city. Why aren't more spaces like this restored? The obvious answer would be it financially isn't realistic but couldn't some part of it be saved? We need to hold onto spaces like these instead of demolishing them because all it does is just creates more waste and destroys this history that can't be recreated.
