The new owners of Lakeview's Century Shopping Centre — you know, the place with the flowery white facade and the arthouse multiplex — are moving to wipe clean the building's face. The motivating factor is making the building more porous and light-filled and therefore more attractive to office and retail tenants. Ald. Tom Tunney heard of the plan at a recent meeting and there's little that can be done to stop it, although Tunney requested a transparent public review process.
