As of March 2019, there is a proposal to retain the house on the site next to a new condominium building. The plan will ensure the house is properly situated and conserved as part of the development, and to designate the house.
The 2015 realty ad focusses on the excellent commercial use value for this property. The house is described as, "Existing 2 storey wood frame house in As-is condition".
