Good news for Downtown and a K-W kind of story - the 103 year old Waterloo Club is moving to the former Webco building at Victoria and Duke Sts.    In Kitchener. Wink

It will be interesting to see how the Waterloo Club evolves. With a $250 initiation fee, plus $500 year feel (regular) plus minimum $600 purchase per year, it sets a certain bar for entry.

The Record article says annual membership is $1,600, which I thought was reasonable.  $500, if accurate would be a serious bargain, it seems to me.

Their web site says $500 a year. That doesn't seem particularly expensive. It's half of that if you live outside of the Region, or are 25 or younger.

I wonder if membership includes any reciprocity privileges with other clubs? Any members here at WRC?

I'm curious about the new digs. I have a friend who is a member and have enjoyed the Club's hospitality a few times, there are some interesting people there.

Doubt I'd join any time soon, though-- already pay for curling club membership!

A friend who has access to 8 Queen took me on a walkthrough last night. The door to the upcoming grocers was open a crack, I took a quick peek inside!

I don't know if this is the entire space or what (I didn't walk in, just looked through the door a bit). Reminds me of the old Vincenzo's space on Belmont!

I think we should propose reciprocity with WRC! Big Grin

Is this something that's popular? I didn't even know it existed, let alone was something people would pay for.

I wonder if the work will extend down to the second floor once the third is completed? It's a much bigger project than I had realized.

Some progress on 28 King St E:

For the record, that's the fibreglass insulation board which has been painted over to look better, until the siding can go on.


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - panamaniac - 07-22-2016

I'm assuming that it will be acrylic stucco?  The façade is in a brown brick, similar to that of Market Square.  They have reproduced the arched front windows, but, strangely, have put in rectangular windows like those in the neighbouring sections of the building rather than reproducing the complete windows.  The windows on the side went in today - I was surprised to see windows here as I assumed that there would someday be an abutting structure.  I wonder if the owner has incorporated the space formerly occupied by the building that burned down and was demolished?  It would make a good spot for a Terrasse if there's to be a restaurant or bar on the main floor.

Has anyone heard anything further on that potential 17 story condo/apartment on College St behind the Shoppers Drug Mart?
