I was really excited about what this 'big development' with a 'global brand' was going to be.  I now feel that Terry Pender's tweet was misleading.  Or, perhaps I read too much into it.

It is a global brand. And it's very nice that the building will be developed and occupied. But, yes, the tweet made it sound even bigger.

Notice that the main tannery building has improvements to its street level and a large rooftop space in the second photo.

Nice!! I guess those original renderings are what's going ahead - notwithstanding missed opportunity to go bigger, I think it looks fantastic and it's great to see development stretching west (south?) along Victoria.

Looks like Schreiters is selling their building for conversion: https://www.realtor.ca/Commercial/Retail/16411483/27-GAUKEL-Street-Kitchener-Ontario-N2G1Y6

Is this the project insider was talking about, at Charles and Gaukel?


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - GtwoK - 02-12-2016

I don't think so... this is simply selling the building, with no plans in mind. Insider seemed to have an idea of what would be constructed at the intersection.

Iirc, insider hinted that the Schreiter property would be part of a larger development.

If Schrieters were to move rather than close, the Eatons Loft property would make a pretty decent show room.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - DHLawrence - 02-12-2016

Is Schreiters closing or moving?

But 20% less space, and surely no cheaper, so I don't think that particular move would make any sense for Schreiter's.
