Very few buildings remain from 12th century Paris. Many have been bulldozed only to be replaced once, twice, or many times. I have been told that small houses existed where now my unit block stands. They served a purpose for a number of years, but when the needs of the city changed, they were taken down so unit blocks could be put in its place. I imagine that as this part of the city changes in the next few years, what with the coming of the new metro line, that this building here might give way to a taller unit block here with more people living on the corner of Plunkett and Chandos than is possible now.
