All this strikes me as two people/groups of people who really aren't good at planning. Someone buys a lot, then isn't sure what to do with it. A group of people buy a house with great intentions, but no plan or a bad plan on how to rehabilitate that house or even where it is going to have to be.

Translation: Shakedown the city for some sort of historic preservation fund and watch the City Council coo and kaw all over it.
