It has been noted that the proposed development of this site is more sympathetic than what happened further north on Audley Street where a developer began demolition of the building as the Toronto Preservation Board was deliberating on its designation (they did have a demolition permit however).

The proposal for this site is to restore the Windsor Public House and the developer has hinted that a brew pub will be opened in the basement and main floor. A row of townhouses around the building are also proposed.
