A new office building will be going up on the former Danny’s Tavern site on Riverside Dr.

The developer has plans to lease out the proposed three-storey red brick building to professionals like accountants, lawyers and insurance brokers.

Consultant Karl Tanner says the site was developed to fit into the neighbouring residential properties. “It’s sort of what laymen people might call Walkerville-esque. It’s got lots of brick, it’s got lots of stone, we’re looking at a third storey that’s maybe a bit more modern with a little bit of glass.”

If all planning processes are approved, the developer is hoping to start construction next year and expects the project to take 6-8 months to complete. Danny’s Tavern has already been demolished.
