Just wondering if anyone in Victoria has checked out the old Bay Building? Boarded up? Security guards? Cameras?

Boarded up - yes. Security - don't know, but as the parkade is still in use I would assume yes. Cameras - good question

Yes yes and yes.

Frequent security checks, cameras, alarms (if not on doors than motion), sealed up pretty tight, lit too well.

Whenever I'm in Vic. i look at this building and to no satisfaction. Are there any plans to renovate, or otherwise?

"Loft living of historic proportions."
Man, I am so sick of slogans like this. Once they're done with the building, the only thing historic will be the facade.

Anyone heard anything about the status of this application? I tend not to pay attention to local media, since it's either painfully localized (glares at the T-C and CH), amateur (glares at A-Channel), or insane (glares at Monday).

Are they still planning on razing the parkade and tossing up a massive apartment tower?

(BTW, I think it would be really cool if they kept the escalator stack in the old HBC as an extra stairwell/elevator alternative. If I could get to my apartment by escalator, I'd love it!)

Haven't heard anything about it lately.

(Off topic part - your description of the local media is 110% correct but it's still better than nothing.)

Actually, the plan is to occupy the site with a massive Tent City, just like the one at the old Woodwards building, circa 2002.

This is weird that I stumbled on this. About the bay building, the story goes like this...
About 20 years ago, theres were several officers assigned to go through the passages under Vic, and one of them was under the old Bay building. Apparently, they saw something under there, but they wouldnt say what it was. Anyways, they boarded it up pretty tightly now.
So I was thinking about this, this morning, and I was asking a friend at work, and coincidently her bf is a security guard there. (At night). They are currently gutting the inside to make way for homes, etc. Basically, every floor is fine, except for the basement, which is where the boiler room is (so he has to check it). In the boiler room he hears screams of women and lots of banging noises. He is always so scared in that place...We should make times to go together and check it out. I need to see what these police saw....
