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.

Renovations (no, not demolition) no under way at 178 Queen St S.

Anyone know what is happening with the old Bullas Glass building behind the one above?

50 Queen St N (Commerce Court) appears to due for some renovations and rebranding.

That open plaza has been nearly screaming for some kind of re-work. Good to see there's a plan.

I've always thought some sort of patio would fit really well on the ground floor

Not sure why such a large parking lot was needed. I guess it is a fairly large or growing business with lots of trucks?

Some additional definition (permit 18-105558 MS), and this makes a bit more sense now, it really is a retain business:

"Permit is for interior alterations to an existing detached house to create a new furnace and fireplace store."

There is now a building permit for this project.

Both houses at Queen and Schneider are gone now:

Petro Canada at Victoria and Edna closed up. Was hoping for a modernization while the construction surrounded them, but the sign says permanently closed.

Frank Etherington's latest blog post claims the developers behind Sixo are negotiating to buy the KW Badminton Club (former Granite Club) building at Park and Agnes.

Do they own the entire building?  I'd assume so.

Interesting property acquisition.  I wonder if they already own some of the adjoining lots?

Looks like 112 Queen St S is getting a face lift (beside the old Schlichter's building). Full scaffolding, plywood and nets have gone up yesterday.
