    (not intended for critique...just sharing something you may find interesting) if you appreciate architecture, you'll appreciate this concept. with the exception of federal office buildings and a few others, a lot of what you still see in dc has been demolished except for the facades.

    here, you see elaborate steel framing that will support a facade until new construction is tied in:

    an interior of a facade with an artsy look. the church is across the street:

    They are doing this to one of the old hotel on Fort Laudable beach. The front of the new hotel will only be four stores. But the back haft will be 15 or 20. It may be cheating little, but is cool and sometime only way to save the look of a neighborhood
