Wrong transport

Just outside the city, there's a disused water treatment works, quite an impressive early 20th century building which was renovated a couple of years ago.  It has potential as office space or as a car showroom, but as it's remained vacant for longer and longer, there's been growing pressure to integrate it into the local transport network.  Sandwiched between the A6 main road and West Coast railway line, it's in a good location to act as a railway station for South Lancaster and, in particular, the University.
However, my altered route to work took me past it this morning, and at least half the building has been occupied by a Porsche dealership.  That's a setback.

It's been like that for ages hasn't it? Wasn't some guy going to turn it into a posh-car dealership, but got into trouble because of road access?

Yeah; exactly. The intended purpose seemed to have fallen-through, so there were suggestions that it ought to be used for something else.

Like a pub or a bar maybe? Lord knows we don't have enough in Lancaster
