  1. Not for Nuthin, but 22 Thames needs to be torn down to build something else. The street needs to be closed down to make it safer and do it quicker. What do these people who oppose propose that the developer do instead? When we bought Condos downtown we knew we were moving into an area that would have a lot of construction for years to come. I welcome almost all of the new projects downtown and hope the developer can do something to lessen the pain of the area residents ,but the residents need to be reasonable as well.
