I drove past the Coptic Church this afternoon and was struck by the size of that addition. The community must be booming!

By the way, is the Opus II Music store still in the Ahrens St building?

Yes, I believe the music shop is still there - just in the back area of the main floor.  Smile Tiger will be the front of the main floor.

This will be their main roasting location.

Smile Tiger Coffee is also served at Google and a number of other locations

Theme will be different than DVLB here with more of a Scandinavian look.

Plans are for a licensed patio out back too.

Opening is set for sometime in the Spring.

I was surprised to see the glass brick front of 100 Ahrens St blown out the other day, so I stopped to have a look.  The building seems to be nearly fully occupied.  The maple floors of the Smiling Tiger location have been refinished and look great.  I'm assuming that the new street front will be mostly glass, which will make for a nice space.

New canopy/signs going up today at the Weber Chambers building on King St W - "The Chambers" at 144 (apartment building entrance), "San Francisco Panini" at 146 (former Casablanca). and "King West Fine Men's Grooming" at 150 (former Bead Boutique). Sad at the moment to see this building sandwiched between the siding-clad convenience store and the old Mayfair site, but perhaps someday ....

The Record has a piece on the renovation of 5 Michael St (most recently home to the Beckett School of Music) into space (31,000 sqft) for high tech offices. The project is to be completed by the fall.

Thanks for the update.  Unique tenants which is nice to see.

This is excellent news and another key piece in Kitchener downtown revitalization.

Next up, I suspect, will be the Huck Glove factory.  At least I hope so.
