Last night, I was given the unique opportunity to tour the McOuat building with Nancy Gibbs, the Project Manager. Ms. Gibbs relayed to me that the McOuat (pronounced Mi-coo-it) was empty for 24 years, so it is amazing to me that it is in as good of shape as it is. The building formerly housed a sporting goods store, with each floor dedicated to a different sport, which is certainly a quaint idea to our 21st century shopping habits.
The first floor will likely have a restaurant and features very high ceilings:
The second floor will be an office space:
Finally, the 3rd through the 7th floors will be 1 bedroom apartments:
It’s great to see this building brought back to life. Renovation could be completed as soon as late October.
