Worked in this building. Kinda surprised they are considering this and wondering who would lease these floors. Probably the worst building I have worked in, the floors are old. There's still ashtrays in the bathroom back when you could smoke indoors and they are carpeted (gross). It's far from Union meaning most commuters had to take the TTC from Union which is an inconvenience compared to the buildings closer in the PATH and the amount of crazy homeless people that hang out in the building makes it feel sketchy. Add to that the perfect suicide style atrium. Many days co-workers would jokingly look over and comment how the building is perfect for someone to jump after a bad day at the office. Was never a fan.
Add to that death-trap staircases, drafty windows and harsh air conditioning.
AOB is a safety and environmental disaster.
Apparently, this renovation will keep it this way.

Preliminary Report on this one is headed to the next meeting of TEYCC.

A quick perusal suggests the City lack enthusiasm for it, as currently configured.

Of note, given when the application was initially filed is that it has not yet been deemed complete; some materials remain outstanding.
