|Resembles||A UFO. From the ’70s.||A Gothic cathedral on steroids|
|Chances you could live there||Slim. The place will likely get torn down. (Plus, why would you want to?)||High (if you’ve got deep pockets). The smart money is on redevelopment as condos, hotel rooms, and shops.|
|Reuse ideas||Medical marijuana farm. It’s essentially a giant greenhouse already—some employees use umbrellas to shield their desks from the sun.||Museum of journalism. Like the Newseum in Washington, D.C., it would teach people about print journalism’s glory days.|
