I think Bin 4's current location will actually become more desirable in the months and years to come. First of all, Legato will have a building full of hungry residents filling up soon. Second, 989 Johnson will eventually come on stream with even more mouths to feed. As for the sketchy social behaviour, I find that the busier the streets are with regular people of good will, the less attractive it becomes for the sketchy types.
Don't forget the nearby Jukebox building, which I would imagine should be opening before 989!
The issue Bin 4 has with the location is that it A) has a brutal layout with the bar right in the hallway to the main seated area and B) is generally just too small for the amount of business they do.
The area is not an issue for them, but I can understand why they would be looking for an upgraded space nearby.
Should probably post this here instead of the 1515 thread...
Looks like they've got the window wrap up now confirming that The Agency will be moving into both spaces at Legato.
The Agency is a luxury real estate company known for its presence on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. Cowichan Realtor Brian Danyliw very recently (summer time) acquired the Canadian rights to The Agency and has been aggressively expanding across Vancouver Island and the rest of BC/Alberta.
Approximately 1,500-units of condominiums and purpose-built rental apartments will receive occupancy status over the next two years.
