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

Grading and waterworks seem to be happening now.

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

Renovations at 50 Ontario St: the tenants (driving school and African restaurant) have moved out and there is some preliminary work ongoing.

Has anyone else noticed the recladding going on at the old apartment building on Kehl St over by Queen E school? It is startling and very visible from the expressway. I think I'm going to like it.

The one that they redid in the very funky tri-colour over the past few years? (https://goo.gl/maps/mWD7AvnGDzj) Are they doing it again?

I like that building, it reminds me of dazzle camouflage ships from WW1.

That's the one.  I thought it was just being done now - hazards of not living in K-W anymore!

The west side was done last year, now they're doing the east.
