McCaffery intends to bring new restaurants, retail and office space to the five-block-long building.

“It sounds good. I haven't seen all the details. I don't know of the vendors going in.  I don't know the use of all the space, but it seems like they're on the right track,” Strip District visitor Diane Mohr said.
