A major redevelopment of this site is now up on dev tracker. Plans call for light manufacturing at grade and self storage on the upper floors; the design is inspired by shipping containers. Note that the building will not be set back from Douglas Street.

The structural engineer might protest. Glass can’t hold up that corner.

Yes but the pillar could be inside the building. The more I look at this, the less I like it.

I can't argue with that. The ground floor design is more apropos somewhere off upper Douglas Street.

In addition to first-floor manufacturing space, a restaurant space is planned for the ground level.

So those actually are clear windows on the ground? I thought they might be panels.
