    i’m somewhat ashamed to have some stuff stored here, it seems like such a waste of a very beautiful building. condos might be good for the neighbourhood’s property values, but it would be awesome to see it used at some point for something that’s economically productive, with jobs etc.

      I agree…it’s a downer not to see new jobs or people coming into the community.

    Hi Kevin,

    It’s actually part loft-studios. A lot of companies, artists, photographers, seamstress, fashion, etc. are here now.

    A large accounting co. will be moving in shortly so the building has been put to good use and we love it here!

    Cheers!
