Its still exactly the same as far as I know. Fenced in, and empty. Seems a shame to have such a gorgeous building left to rot.

The Macaroni Grill was awesome. They even had opera singers in there walking around and doing Opera singing for tables at a time.

Yeah, why?

Whoever owns it must be eating up a ton of money from property taxes and upkeep.

I'm so curious to know who owns it!

The Keg Restaurant group owns the property and building. I know earlier this year, some group tried to ask the City of Vancouver to get the Keg to turn that building into a public library but don't think that gained much traction with the owners.

How come they haven't opened a Keg location there if they already own it? That's a prime location for dinner, especially during the summer!

No clue, I do recall they announced plans in 2011 to open a restaurant at the location, but those plans seemed to have been scrapped. My only guess is the costs to renovate and upkeep such an old building and not being able to tear it down to build a new structure due to the heritage status.

Here's the article about the library http://m.news1130.com/2013/04/27/new-library-proposed-for-gabriola-mansion/
