Marina's Bar, across from the Kitchener Market on King, was destroyed in an early-morning fire.

Most of those lots are owned by Manulife for employee parking; I can't think they'll be going anywhere anytime soon.

"Most"?  I thought they only owned the parking garage and the lot between Joseph, Charles, Water, and Francis.  I don't think they own any of the others along Charles and King.  There is a lot of surface parking in the area, although not all of the rest are owned by the city either.

Manulife owns Joseph, Charles, Water, Francis and also the lot framed by Charles, Francis, Halls Lane, U-Haul. 

Perimeter (of Breithaupt Block, Walper, Eaton Loft ground floor fame) owns Charles, Water, Francis, Halls Lane (including the recently renovated building at 22 Water) and also all the buildings from the corner of Water to where the city is looking to sell its parking lot (Unity Baking). The only thing they do not own in that block, in fact is the TD building and that lot.

Marina's Bar, on King St E across from the Kitchener Market, was gutted by fire last night. Fortunately, nobody was hurt.

That lot (Charles, Water, Francis, Halls) looks like a standard city lot with the standard municipal parking signage, I didn't realize it wasn't owned by the city.

The city owns the lot bordered by Charles, Francis, Hall's lane and Water.

The lots between TD and Rana/Unity, one is city owned the other is part of the TD building.

Other than the facebook post is there any evidence that the city is selling the land. Usually that had to go to council as a disposition of surplus land.

KevinL posted about the fire at Marina's on the previous page. The article he linked states that one person is unaccounted for.

I gather they located him.
