Pierce Atwood Looking at Commercial St. Building

Apparently the law firm Pierce Atwood, who is currently at One Monument Square, is considering moving into the large brick building at 258 Commercial St.  The building would need to essentially be rebuilt to accommodate offices, and the first floor would still need to be reserved for marine uses.  Considering the building is a huge eyesore on the waterfront (though popular for photographers*), this would be a positive development.  Portland Press Herald:
O'Connor declined to name any locations, but confirmed that the law firm is considering moving to 258 Commercial St., a five-story brick building next to the Portland Fish Exchange. Except for a few small tenants, the building is now occupied only by Cumberland Self Storage
