Probably a good spot for a medical building or something.

The EIWO lot at the east side of Weber at Scott has the signs back up with SOLD on them!, hoping something stars soon, lol Also the lot on the west side of Weber at Scott has a chain link fence around the empty lot.

Gosh, that must be about the third or fourth go 'round for that site.

Yes, I moved away from that area in 2002, but the residents were complaining about the 20 story building first proposed here 5 years earlier IIRC.

Noticed a plethora of utility spray paint markings along Queen downtown the past few days, and then today workers were removing this grassy patch [Image: RLUYitG.png]

Is this the Queen St rework? Didn't think this was supposed to be done so soon.

Might be prep work for it - less for the official contractor to do when they start.

Grading and waterworks seem to be happening now.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - rangersfan - 03-23-2018

Do we know what is happening at 453 Park St?

It would be nice to see this developed, it has been empty for a long time (like many old gas station properties).
