Demo contractors often leave just the doorway like that. Must be a thing.

It's superstitious from what I understand.

Give the ghosts a way out of the building? Of course, I think that door might have been the only particularly noteworthy feature of the building, so maybe someone will save it and use it for something else. I hate to see tax breaks for this sort of thing, but at least it's not worse than what it's replacing for a change. Meh. About an even break here, I suppose. No terrible losses, no tremendous gains. Probably some decent brickwork in trade for a little more density. The tax revenue is a loss, but it ain't my town, so so be it I guess.
The old columns and entrance will be re-used on the new building:

I went by there about a week ago and didn't see anything still standing. That said, I hadn't seen this post so I wasn't really looking to see if anything was either.
