> it’s impossible to do significant development.

Changing the building's interior layout, utilities, demising walls, or changing the use represents significant development. You can do these things with LPC designation. You'd apply for a Certificate of No Effect, if I recall from the few times I did this as a project manager in the city.

Edit: The original poster changed their tune and claimed it couldn't be developed into a tower. They'd still be wrong though; see Hearst Tower as an example.

I rather enjoy the rating system developed by the crew at Double Toasted. In descending order, each with a "high or low" option:

Better than Sex: This film is excellent, and pushes the boundaries of cinema as an art form.

Full Price: A very enjoyable film which is worth paying full price for in the cinema.

Matinee: Worth seeing in the cinema, but not worth paying full price for, or at least during the initial theatrical run.

Rental: Can be enjoyed, but still has a variety of flaws. This is worth waiting paying very little to see after the theatrical release.

Some Ol' Bullshit: The crew recommend against paying any money to see this film, and has very little that redeems it.

Fuck You: The crew actively recommends against seeing this film at all. This rating is typically given when a critic is angered or offended by a film's content, and indicates that it has absolutely no redeeming qualities.

Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro

I ran over my neighbors

Bitchin' Camaro, bitchin' Camaro

Now I'm in all the papers

My folks bought me a bitchin' Camaro

With no insurance to match

So if I happen to run you down

Please don't leave a scratch

I ran over some old lady

One night at the county fair

And I didn't get arrested

Because my dad's the mayor
