Wouldn't that give the current owner a windfall, as they (instead of the city) would then be able to just turn around and sell it?

I don't think that's the case. For sure they would need to get current on their property taxes (over a million is owing). But there's an order from the province registered to the title to clean it up, so a sale might not be able to be made until that is cleared.

Did they remove the houses just to expand the parking lot?


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - MidTowner - 04-03-2017

On page 114, Viewfromthe42 says that the lots are to be sodded, but speculates that the intent might be to use them for parking. Others speculate that some portion of the parking lot may be redeveloped, but who knows when.

Strictly speaking, a condition of the demolition permit is that these two lots be sodded. That should be what happens until some other application is made.

The OMB has approved the severance of land declared surplus by CN. They intend to sell the land to a metal scrap yard Joseph and Company some Neighbours are not happy about this change.

Demolotion-style fencing is up around the former Enterprise lot on King in Kitchener, was something expected to occur here?

You sure about that?  I could be remembering it wrong, but I thought they were different blocks?

The Enterprise location is definitely within the block described in that thread (at the King/Cameron corner, specifically).


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - Spokes - 04-10-2017

I'm clearly misremembering that. My bad.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - Viewfromthe42 - 04-17-2017

It's within that block, it just doesn't make sense (to me) to be only demolishing one portion.

New feature signage at 22 Frederick. (It used to be for Sun Life.)

The tax sale for 152 Shanley St was unsuccessful receiving only 1 bid $200,000, which was significantly short of the required amount.

Another win for blanket statement regulations!


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - tomh009 - 05-08-2017

Admittedly $200K does seem like a rather lowball offer.

Not sure why someone would offer that given that everyone should know that the city can't accept it anyway.
