It's good to see larger buildings spreading out, and downtown starting to actually meet with the surroundings in that area, hopefully this can be a bit of a "spark" for the "reunification" of the neighbourhoods!
It's also great to see the development occurring in the logical, under-used areas just adjacent to downtown, rather than redeveloping the same already-built up properties and losing the existing building stock. I just hope that whatever eventually comes here meets Brunswick in an appropriately urban way to extend the main street quality (i.e., mid-sized storefronts suitable to a diversity of businesses) rather than a big wall with one front foor.
