There was a time

Over in the Eastern side of Portsmouth island is the former location of the business school. The University had nice old buildings here which dated back to the 1940's or so. Anyway, time and progress happened, the Business school moved to the west side of the island to a brand new building and the old school was demolished to make way for... you guessed it, more housing. And this picture is the end result. Its not cheap housing either, Portsmouth has some of the most expensive real estate in the country as you can see from this link

I`m not complaing about this building - I quite like the Scandinavian styling, the light and airy feel of the place - its just a shame they had to demolish the old building and not preserve it or restore it even making it into housing.

Funnily enough, this satellite image shows the old building in part demolished state
