While neither option is optimal, I'd rather see empty storefronts which at least offer the hope of a future retail renaissance rather than surrender to the zombie invasion of our commercial districts by the living dead of storefront dentist and realtor offices. Of course, tearing down viable, interesting, and affordable existing commerical structures in favor of new but bland and high-priced developments makes that all the more unlikely.
My thought exactly!!!
