Manulife Real Estate is proposing a redevelopment of the Traders Building at 625 Church Street. The proposal would add a rental tower atop the stately six storey 1956 brick building and allow for street level retail along Church Street.
On December 6, Manulife hosted an open house to inform the community of its plan and receive feedback.
In the renderings only the Church Street facade is shown as preserved. The south side of the building, on Charles Street, would have an increased footprint, eliminating the current patio space and moving the new structure closer to the sidewalk.
The proposal is in its very early stages; the height and look of the new building is yet to be determined. We we can expect further community consultation before a development applications is made to the City.
