Then there's the MetroPark which is not interesting, the abandoned Ralston Building, and farther south is mostly lower density residential until you get to Morris and it's got stronger mix of commercial. Architecturally it has some gems though.

It's too bad the MT&T building on Hollis was torn down. It was a 6 storey office building where the Four Points is today. I think it had another smaller brick office building next to it too.
