Spring Street Exchange On the Market

Back in April I wrote to be careful what you wish for, after the new Club El Antro took over the former Pacific Stock Exchange on Spring and started using the street-side for its front door. I had long wished for the space to be more activated on its Spring street side, but foolishly didn't plan on the noise that would wake me up at 2am each Saturday night.

A month or so ago the club suddenly closed. Or rather, it simply stopped opening. The website didn't reveal any change, but the doors remained chained. This week a for sale sign appeared on the building (pictured), and checking back in on the club's website shows that they've moved on to Huntington Park.

Now that the building is again on the market, what could go in there that would be an asset for Downtown and the Historic Core? Is a nightclub the continued proper use? What other uses could go into such an odd building?
