Vrancor, the company that owns most of the properties in the block framed by Main Street, Bay Street, King Street and Caroline Street, has released a site plan [PDF link] for 150 Main Street West, the site of the former Revenue Canada Building, and 20/22 George Street.
Site plan for 150 Main Street West and 20/22 George Street
The plan, drafted by architecture firm Desmarais Cousineau Yaghjian St-Jean & Assoc. (DCYSA) and dated March 3, 2011, shows retail along the south side of George Street, a parking entrance and laneway off Main Street through to George, and a combination of retail and reception on the North side of George.
Detail of the plan for 150 Main Street West
East of the parking lane, the south side of George also features a hotel guest drop-off area, with a restaurant at the corner of George and Bay.
After controversy erupted in January, over Vrancor's plan to demolish the old Revenue Canada Building at 150 Main Street West, the company has since proposed partially restoring the west side of the building and preserving its heritage attributes.
The company has not yet released renderings of the plan. The architectural drawing was released this morning to Councillor Jason Farr.
