Seems like this is old news at this point, but MB just 'updated' it. Exploring their options - but SMRT is gone and VA is going. I walk by regularly and they've had a sign on the end facing the water advertising 'move in ready' space. LIHC posted the news article on their site on Dec 2, 2020, and the sign was definitely there after that - and might still be there. I can't imagine they have big plans for the building/lot if they are also trying to find lessees?

How great would that be to demo this and build a 12-15 story apartment building with a combination of market rate and affordable housing. This is such a cool place to live, and the views from the upper floors would be epic. This area needs middle income residents or it will become like the Rowes Wharf area of Boston--only for the rich, and at 6pm, everyone leaves (the office workers). The city needs to start planning things better for optimizing lifestyles. I'm concerned that too many condos purchased as second homes or investments will create dead areas after hours.
