That building is part of the MTS complex. The Hyatt is the next building down across the parking lot.

The Biff's got it.

Artis Reit owns that whole MTS complex I wonder if they would scoop up the BMO building.

^^ Thanks Biff, I see where I made my mistake.

I didn't know that Artis Reit owns that MTS building as well. Now I really wonder if the BMO building could be part of a redevelopment plan for that building as well. Maybe another hotel or hotel/residence with the BMO building as the fanciest entrance hall in the city??

BMO as an entrance lobby/restaurant/lounge area for a classy new hotel next door is something I could live with.

It makes me sad to think of such a beautiful old building functioning as government office space, a location for a Moxie's restaurant or some such.

Do you know who owns the lot to the east of the complex between the older MTS building and the future Hyatt? That would really be an asset to anyone trying to develop the site. It could help create space to put up a building that doesn't interfere with 333 Main. Combine BMO, the older MTS, and the new lot and put up a big signature mixed use tower - hotel and residential with main floor commercial space - sort of like a more vertical version of TNS, could even add a boutique office component.

It's possible that Artis does not own the "older" MTS building. Here's the Artis info on "Bell MTS Building I & II" which is are the two MTS buildings fronting main:

And their portfolio site doesn't appear to have anything else on the south east corner of P&M:

Could BellMTS still own the building directly east of the BMO building?

Yes, I think it's always belonged to them - dating back to the days of Manitoba Government Telephones. It's chock full of telephony equipment...
