Looks interesting!  I don't think it's been discussed here yet.  But it might be in The Record next week or next month.  Rolleyes

There was article in some paper or another discussing that a few months back actually! That's the first we've seen of a website though.

Yeah, you're correct on this one.  But often new developments seem to be posted here first.  That's one of the reasons I love this site.

Holy cow, I had no idea that this site was being developed in this manner. 475,000 square feet is a ton of space!

Under the about section it says Miovision will be a tenant, do you think they are moving there whole operation to this development?


RE: General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours - taylortbb - 03-30-2016

Yes, Miovision is moving their office into that development. One of the co-founders of Miovision, Kurtis McBride, is also behind Catalyst 137.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a "hackable streetscape"?

That is great news, seeing a promising tech company moving into the core.

Hackable Streetscape is technobabble in my opinion (and I work in tech). But they describe it on their website as:
Quote:The finished space will be permeated with IoT sensors to make the building and streetscape “hackable.”

Basically they're going to put cool Internet enabled sensors and controls all over the building, then open it up to tenants to experiment on them.
