Geotechnical/hydrological drilling ongoing this morning at the Manulife parking lot bordered by Water/Joseph/Francis/Charles.

163 Palmer St, next to the Iron Horse Trail, is getting rebuilt.  The nasty-looking back addition will go, and a second story will be added instead.

Here is the pre-construction state (thanks to Mr Google):

Might be interesting.  I like the name and the "missing since 1916" part.  But what on earth is a "European-style dining atmosphere?"

The new front facade on the old Schlichter building at 132 Queen St S, is going up this afternoon.

I love the name and logo.  "European-style dining atmosphere" means "we will charge you a premium".  Smile

Seriously, if "Euro-style" just meant that you won't get your bill until you ask for it .....

They don't ask you how the food is while you're in the middle of chewing it?


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - panamaniac - 07-25-2017

Not only that, they never ask you if you are "still working on that"! Smile


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - panamaniac - 07-25-2017

Ooh, and I forgot - your coffee will come AFTER your dessert, not with.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - MidTowner - 07-25-2017

This place sounds like it's going to be great- I can't wait!

... or no need to tip because they already pay a decent wage to their staff.

Well now you're just being silly ... Wink

The townhouse development on Courtland is finally just about ready for occupancy -- with street-facing hydro meters, as panamaniac predicted.  Still, not terrible, and fits fairly nicely into the neighbourhood.

Street-facing hydro meters make sense; it's a lot easier for the reader to walk up and find them instead of rooting around the backyard and walking past everyone's windows to read them.

Or just scan the tags they're mounting on everyone's houses.
