The Mystery of 208 Varet Street

July 31st, 2008 · 1 Comment

This is 208 Varet Steet (aka 198 Varet), which is of interest because it’s just down the street from the “Live Like a Hipster King” loft hostel and commercial condo which has been featured recently. 208 has been under construction for a while and is an 11-story building of 65,000 square feet. Applications to build it were first filed in 2000. So what is it? The location is an odd one for a commercial building and it doesn’t look like a warehouse, although it could end up being a commercial condo, which would give rather desolate Varet Street not one but two such structures. Regardless, the building could end up being quite fragrant as its right next to a parking lot for garbage trucks. Time will tell.
