I don't know about current access, but the current plan is to preserve two facades but to demolish it for a new Loblaws store. Even the facades will be (carefully) dismantled and rebuilt later. It's unfortunate because the whole building is an interesting 1930s Art Deco industrial building that seems convertible to new uses. Loblaws in intent on preserving the absolute bare minimum for a building that's meaningful both to their corporate history and the city in general. It'll be open soon enough when they begin work on the project. Hopefully, though, they'll consider either more complete preservation for their new store or come up with an arrangement where someone else takes over who will preserve it while they find another location in the area. (The many condos going up often have retail opportunities on the bottom floors.)
