A mysterious arson fire took place and burned the entire block of Sun Drug and the Opera house. Did that arsonist ever get caught?
Did the Sun Drug building burn down? I don't remember that. The empty Lowenstein's building burned some year before, if I recall correctly.
Then, another mysterious arson took place against the Miller Hotel, and burned down that block, right at the time of Latrobe's first round of revitilization.
In what year did the Miller Hotel burn? I don't really even remember it. I'm guessing it must have been either empty or else a flophouse when that happened and not a working hotel.
and the MASSIVLEY UGLY 1-story Dahar building and Smith Mears law buildings were erected, when multi-story "tall" buildings should have been designed.
I'm sure that corner would be an empty lot more than thirty years later if those (admittedly ugly) buildings hadn't been built. Nice buildings don't build themselves and over the past forty years there's been very close to zero need for the additional office space on upper floors in downtown Latrobe.
All over the United States at this time, new buildings were designed to "fit" with older structures, that's why many towns look lovely and Latrobe looks like shit.
Then, the entire block of Spring to Weldon between Jefferson and Ligonier was razed, and up went the BUTT UGLY parking garage and that little mini-mall, once story, that guess what? looks like shit!
Around this time, Greengate Mall was built--people went wild to shop there! It was new, it was a mall, it was magnifico.
Both your time line and your logic are all over the board. You're not making any sense. But more importantly, you fail to understand that in order for commercial buildings to be built, there needs to be some COMMERCE first. It's seldom the other way around.
