I say semi-abandoned in that there have been no renovations done to the place... it was basically left in state in 1969 and the office space, etc. all has the air of an abandoned building.

I mean, it's great that the building is used from time to time and that the place is still heated and secured, etc., but it's pretty well the opposite of 'highest and best use'.

A restaurant wouldn't be the worst use for the BMO banking hall but it sure wouldn't be the best use either. Maybe one of the credit unions can step in and save it and keep using it as a banking hall space...
