70 King St. E. is the Crabby Joe's. If they buy up the adjacent parking lot, that's a good sized parcel to rework as well.

What do you mean "rework" for the Crabby Joe's? That is a designated heritage building.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - notmyfriends - 01-28-2017

I assumed he was just referring to the adjacent parking.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - DHLawrence - 01-29-2017

Do we know anything about EuroPro? Holdings elsewhere, developments they've worked on?

Redevelop with reuse is what I meant. The building can be integrated into something better, I'm sure.

They are new.  A number of ex-DREAM people on staff.  So far all the holdings I have seen have been DREAM divestments (in, for example, Kitchener, Windsor and Barrie).  So it seems a lot like a partial management buy-out/hive-off from DREAM.

Given that Dream already put together a proposal for the parking lot I suspect it's a part of the deal. See http://www.waterlooregionconnected.com/showthread.php?tid=356

Kitchener City Council has voted to list the former legion hall on Ontario St for sale.

I can't help but wonder if we'll soon see a number of City of Kitchener properties come up for sale. They've got a number of parking lots in particular that they've planned to sell to developers


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - tomh009 - 01-30-2017

I think it'll depend on demand ... if the Legion and the parking lot between King/Water/Charles/Francis go quickly, there might be more.

Hope they do more with their Windsor holdings than Dream did.

Much later ... the property has no signage and blinds on the windows.  But it appears that at least the ground floor is being used as office space.  Tenant unknown.

318 Duke Street West (old Fire Station #2, between Duke and Breithaupt) seems to be undergoing some work inside.

There was a dance studio here until recently, when it relocated to a larger space near Belmont. There doesn't seem to be a permit for whatever work is happening- something tells me that, like some of the spaces just around the corner on Breithaupt, it is being set up as office space. But it could be anything.

That's indeed how they advertised it.
