The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

24 August 2005

We can dream, can't we?

A bit of fantasy from The Downtown Guy:

Me and Maurice Kanbar met over a few drinks — mostly some intoxicating substance called Skyy Vodka — and completed a deal for him to buy the First National Tower, old Braniff Building and Century Center Plaza. He's turning the first two buildings into condos, and will be converting the plaza into an indoor skating rink surrounded by shops and restaurants.

Of course, things could change once he sobers up.

Don't they always?

Seriously, somebody ought to do something with the First National Center. And while Century Center is scheduled for a facelift, there's still a lot to be done on the side of downtown that doesn't serve drinks.
