This is great. I wonder if work has started on the re-purposing yet?

In terms of live/work/play, the Trio on Belmont apartments seem like a better idea than ever, even if the "play" still needs more work.

Communitech has leased 60,000 sqft in this building, likely to expand their presence to include hardware startups.

That is a pretty sizeable chunk, especially considering their expansion at the Tannery.

Between this and the 130,000 square feet for Miovision, almost half the total space is spoken for! Communitech should be a big boost to attract other tenants.
