I just noticed the rendering posted out front of the Burma restaurant that closed at the end of 2013. Here’s a clearer shot from their website:

Douglas’ website says:

“Douglas Development acquired both 736 and 740 6th Street in 2013. The redevelopment plan for the properties is to combine the two buildings into one modern office building with street level retail. Plans for the redevelopment include adding a modern brick and glass facade to the exterior of the structure, gutting and remodeling the interior and increasing both structures to be a total of four stories.

This new property is in the initial planning stage. Plans for the property will evolve through the planning and permitting stages.
