Total Loss or Future Office Space?

For now, the wrecking ball's being held at bay in West Salem. The former site of the West Salem Boys and Girls club was slated for demolition after the building's roof caved under the weight of heavy snow. Building owner Franciscan Skemp had said the building would be razed and the lots underneath sold. But that might not be the case anymore. Franciscan Skemp confirms for us that they're in negotiations with somebody over possibly selling the building intact. There's a possibility that a developer would buy the building, repair it and turn it into office space. The Boys and Girls club, meanwhile is moving to a former church space.

Does the city offer too much financial help to developers?
