Resurrected In Original Design

It was a post dated 14-May-2010 showing the photo of old shops torn down at Theater Street. The construction of rebuild the building is fast and it reach the roofing stage now. Anyway, to my surprise, it remains quite similar to the original design, although not exactly but at least it is more harmony to the other shop houses at its surrounding. I check in more detail of the photo taken in 14-May, it seems like the few pillars are retained in this building. This is a good example of redeveloping old buildings in downtown. Nevertheless, to correspond the effort of heritage building preservation, it would be greater & more meaningful if the whole building is preserved (may be reinforcement is needed) instead of reconstructed.
