As part of the West End plan, new density was to be concentrated on the western end of Davie Street, leaving the Gay Village up the hill as a more low-rise streetfront.  And so the one-storey spec commercial buildings from Denman to Cardero became highly desirable.  This one is soon to go:

.

Davie 1 (1)

.

To be replaced by this:

Davie 1 (2)

.

It retains the commercial frontage but, at least in the rendering, lacks very much architectural interest, while significantly changing the scale of the street.
