I actually like the idea of converting to residential mentioned above... The current proposals are all crap. The city balked 5 or 6 years ago at renting office space at less than half what they're offering to pay now. Back then they said it was too expensive. Now they're falling all over themselves to pay the highest rent in the area... That's us that will have to pay that rent, whether it comes from the province or the city...

I've been in the building a few years ago. The structure is solid, the facade can be repaired with the damaged pieces of terra-cotta replicated in fibreglass for a reasonable cost. I couldn't find the lovely tile floor they go on about, and I was looking for it... Either way, the building is totally impractical for office use without major enlargement... It's actually very tiny inside.

Residential sounds like a really interesting idea + there's a pool in the basement already, but I'm not sure the Lister's big enough to pay for the renovations
