What is the long stone building just below the falls?

Dumbest/easiest question of the day, what is the long grey building near water level just below the falls? It looks massive and industrial...but no obvious way to get to it. Here's a link to the Google map of the building; it just struck me as odd when looking at maps of the area. Thanks!

There used to be an administration building on the site of the Fallsview Casino. An elevator took you down to the power station via tunnels as well as to the valves controlling the water.
