Instead it seems like Barrington has special appeal as a more historic street, and maybe there's an advantage to being a bit closer to the office core.

I suspect that Starfish has played a big role in all this by investing a lot of money in Barrington Street in a concerted way and working to attract new tenants. The same properties seem to perform wildly differently in different hands, and there was (and maybe still is) a lot of potential locked away in heritage buildings with passive owners.

I'm eager to see what happens when all of this plays out and the Roy, NFB, etc. are completed.
Yes, Starfish deserves a *lot* of credit for all of this.

I think the great work they've done, has allowed us to see, more clearly, the detrimental impact that lazy, deadbeat, owners along Barrington really have had...
