D-1 zoning (office district)! I think it's the most permissive zoning in the city.

400 units is quite a lot, but 100 Victoria and Charlie West are pretty much sold out, and Young Condos will surely be at least a year behind. Arrow 2 and Drewlo will be rentals.

I'm waiting to see what kind of mix of unit sizes they will do...

The church isn't ready to be demolished just yet, they're still carefully packing away all the stained glass. The pipe organ was removed recently, though.

Scaffolding is going up on the facade of the Exclamation building. Covering the entire Duke side at the moment.

I wonder how the auction went?  I contacted the Waterloo Region History Museum when I saw (to my great surprise) that the church's WWI and WWII memorial plaques were among the items listed for auction.  By the time the auction was held, they had disappeared from the list of items, so I'm wondering if the Museum might have snagged them or the congregation realized, belatedly, that these were something to save/donate and not auction off?
