Comments: Allowing the destruction of this building will only hurt the historical aspects of this area. This building represents a unique period in Tulane history when students lived in these type of apartment houses around campus, and I would love to see it returned to such a use (or any useful purpose). While I'm sure rennovations would not be easy, I can only imagine they will be cheaper in the long term than destroying the building and replacing it with a structure that will not weather future hurricanes nearly as well as the current building.
