Why Can't ASD Save the Building Facade???

Many places across USA in name of historic preservation usually keep the historic building facades without totally demolishing the whole building(s) itself.

For example, the facades of row houses are structurally preserved for the way of new George Washington University mini-shopping mall in the 1980s to keep the 1800s row house building

Look at numerous photos to get some ideas :

The American School for the Deaf (ASD) alumni should opt for the reasonable compromise for saving the building facade of Gallaudet Hall and let the whole building demolish for the new building
addition against the facade.

Hopefully for the alumni of American School for the Deaf will ask for the second or third opinon about preserving the building facade of Gallaudet Hall to let the new building to accompany the needs of 21th century students and still keep the historical memory of this historic building.
