Downtown San Jose has changed in the last twenty years. It has definitely been cleaned up, with nicer buildings. Buildings have been repaired and repainted. But there are still some eyesores, such as this one. Sometimes buildings are repainted and repaired on the sides that face the public. But this is in front of a parking lot. On the left is what is a boarded up church, and on the right is a building that has been repaired and remodeled. But you can see that the side showing in the picture, that it hasn't been repainted or remodeled on that side. It is currently empty and waiting for someone to lease it.
