 Some still say the Gillette building in Lowertown is so unattractive it should be torn down rather than be reused for a ballpark facility or anything else... The building above was once similar in appearance, some said tear it down, it was ugly.  Then along came Holiday Inn who bought it from Days Inn.  They added a new 'skin' to the building, then doubled the room rates!
Here's a bit more 'conceptual' information for you.  The illustrations above and below are cross-section views of the Gillette building repurposed as a ballpark-amphitheatre-multiple-use facility.  They are just part of the building's available space.  To learn more visit the Power-Point presentation on the left side of this page.
