To start, the developer is proposing redevelopment of the Imperial Char House into an office building with associated food, beverage and retail. It is proposed that a portion of the Char House will house The Cannon, an innovation space that provides numerous workspace options, programming, content, and events, with access to sponsors, mentors, accelerators, incubators, and venture capital. The remainder of the 40-acre proposed project, which includes all currently existing historical structures, is a mixed-use walkable area including retail, food and beverage, office, event space, residential (including multi-family), with extensive outdoor green space. The top priority of the project is preservation of historic buildings as well as an emphasis on creating a vibrant, energetic destination for the community.
