In the next building, the one with the shape of a crucifix/cross, there was an expo going on. Basically there were small outlets displaying/selling creative and artistic kind of merchandise for urban people.
Everything looked very modern (and expensive) and not to my liking, so I just walked around taking photos.
It is always a good idea to restore historical building and turn it into something more functional for the public. I have already seen a few similar premises that have become commercial hubs, like in Toronto and Yokohama.
