General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours
The rowhouse has come down today on Scott Street/Pearl Place.

More randoms:  

There appears to be work going on again at the Mayfair hotel, specifically in the three storey portion to the east of the main tower.  A number of the back and side windows are covered with plywood and there are construction waste bins out back.  Hopefully not related - two cement segments of the sidewalk on the Young St side of the Mayfair have buckled upwards by about 3 or 4 inches where the two segments meet.  I noticed some earth-filled trucks on the sidewalk earlier today and I wonder if they are responsible?

A covered construction hoarding has gone up on the façade of 41 King St W (former Peter Martin's).  Work to be done on the façade, perhaps?

I noticed some people in hardhats inside the demolition fence examining the unfinished side of the burnt out building next to Niko Niko Restaurant on King St E.  It sure would be good to see that damaged building finished off.

There was a water main break yesterday there. Massive amounts of water gushing from in between the segments. Don't know what caused the break.

Wow!  It must have been a real gusher to raise the sidewalk in that way.

We're both right - new windows going in to 41 King E today.

Drove by where the old Record newspaper building used to be. They are tearing down the end building near the urgent care/Canadian tire. Wonder what's going to be built there? Was suppose to be a movie multiplex planned year's ago.

According to section 4 of this CBRE listing sheet https://s3.amazonaws.com/spacelist-paper...1418433966 it shows a proposed grocery store.

Thank you, hope it's a Sobey's.

I'm hoping it will be something that's not in KW yet like Longo's or Loblaws, but if not then I hope it's a Sobeys also.
