The building, a former trolley car barn, is now closed. The four finalists for the reuse have proposed; a roller rink and entertainment center; a mall with a theater and museum that would also have programs for entrepreneurs who want to start retail businesses and restaurants; a marketplace with two restaurants, eight to 12 food stalls, a grocer and a cooking school, along with personal services such as a salon; and a machine shop to make prototypes for businesses.
