The small 12,000 sq. ft. lot is right next to the Capital Residences tower and is currently occupied by a 1914-built single-storey retail building with tenants such as a picture frame store, Red Burrito, Simon’s Bike Shop, Vancity Weed, Thai Cuisine Restaurant, and India Gate. In a recent Instagram post, the restaurant said it received an eviction notice to vacate the property.
