Once upon a time there was a proposal for a flat-iron style building to be built there, but I never heard anything about it ever again. That was a few years ago.

I just found in the January 16, 2017 council agenda that a demolition permit was issued for this property.

I like design 1 and 3, although I like 3 better.

A fairly bland design don't you think? But one wouldn't expect anything remotely interesting in St. John's when it comes to cool architecture unfortunately.

It gets the job done, I suppose. The coast guard probably isn't worried about design or anything. It isn't exciting, but it's also not offensive.....is that considered a win?

A lot smaller than I expected. Is this going on the site of the current building?
