It's great to hear that something will happen to the Kenmore building. I feel that this building depresses the entire Pearl corridor. I had family members from Portland, OR here last month who were stunned by the vacant properties in downtown Albany. They were confused why such a beautiful downtown (more beautiful than Portland's they said), would have empty buildings like this, and I discussed the problematic landlords.
