Here’s another example of how the Mount Pleasant industrial area continues to evolve. We published the render a year ago when this 50′ site had a 1907 house on a corner lot. Now this 18,000 square foot office and industrial building has replaced it. We weren’t sure initially who the architect was, but it is MallenGowingBerzins architects (MGBA), a firm with a lot of recent history for designing interior spaces in the city, (including some of our favourite bar restaurants) but relatively few buildings.
This might be start of a trend – there’s now an almost identical twin immediately across the street to replace an older single-storey industrial building (appropriately called ‘The Mirror Building’). This one has clothing manufacturing on the main floor, and then two floors of office above. There’s now a coloured render for this one too.
