Possible sale of Old City Hall for a shopping mall[edit]

Read here:

The city has plans to sell the Old City Hall, so that it would be used as a shopping mall.

Should it be added to the article? Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 02:45, 1 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Of course. Secondarywaltz (talk) 14:32, 1 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Done I have also clarified that the city would be leasing off parts of Old City Hall, not selling it outright, as per the briefing notes. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 02:14, 2 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
