RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - Spokes - 09-13-2018

It's got the upper level windows out already, so I'm guessing so.

Yes. The Region bought all three properties in this block for widening Ottawa Street.

So, over/under on when something gets built on that spot again?

10 years?

Before the LRT, I'd say 20. Now I'd tend towards five.

When the Region buys properties like that, do they eventually relist them for development?

Weber and Victoria would fall into a similar category.

I think 10 years is realistic - its a great location, but there is a lot of space closer to the ion station that could be developed first.

Eventually they will sell them as surplus properties and if possible, at appraised market value.

I saw on the city of kitchener's instagram page that they created a poster that has all future projects planned DTK, as a celebration of city hall's birthday or something. Can someone go to city hall tomorrow and take a panorama of it? It should be at the bottom of the stairs, on the main floor. I'd do it but I'm out of town.

I saved the video just in case. The picture shows something interesting by 100 victoria. Looks like 7+ midrise condos there?

Artist concept only or something in the works? ?

Wouldn't that be the garment district project?


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - tomh009 - 09-17-2018

Both 254-262 Queen St S and 270 Spadina (Woodside Terraces) will be discussed at the council meeting on the 24th.

Those mid rise buildings are on the former Bramm Yards land. I want to say I saw a conceptual plan for that area, but as far as I know, the city still owns the parcel and there aren’t any immediate plans for redevelopment.

The Garment Street development is shown at D and labelled as Huck Glove, an older name for the project taken from the heritage building at Victoria and Bramm.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - Spokes - 09-17-2018

The garment street project is only an office and residential tower. Nothing behind it.

I wonder if they just included it for what could be.

Like others have said, the city still owns it. I wonder what they'll do with it.

Oh, I understand the map now, yes, that would be an interesting change, that's currently the parking lot, but the trail is planned to go along there. Certainly would be an improvement.
