These shops, not far from our apartment, have been targeted for demolition. Although they don’t look like much in a cleared-out state, they were in fact quite lively. Restaurants, a tailor, and a very large supermarket amongst them. The structure was probably of dubious construction, but the businesses inside them served many community needs.
I hope that whatever building (or buildings) replace this structure will still continue to provide useful services to the community at affordable prices… and be of good quality construction.
