American ambitions: Just a couple of years ago, developers were planning apartments at the American Indemnity Building, 2115 Winnie in the island’s downtown. But the most recent plans call for self-storage on the second and third floors and 20,000 square feet of commercial space on the first floor, island architect David Watson said.

California-based Kantor Properties, which owns the building, is working to secure permits to replace the roof. And the storage spaces are in the design stage, Watson said.
