This project is pushing the boundary of the area we cover (the Metro Core, pretty much) but it’s an intriguing building that has certainly changed the appearance of the industrial area. As more and more small housing units get built, demand for mini storage units goes up – and small businesses use their services as well. Some of the existing buildings that meet the need for storage are also disappearing, especially Downtown.
So the new buildings that are being developed are getting bigger – but none as much as this 8-storey design by Christopher Bozyk for a small site on the north side of Powell Street near the railtracks. The just completing building is a very faithful version of the original design from nearly five years ago.
