185 King St. S., Waterloo (Corner of King and Allen)
Particulars of Perimeter Developments' office tower have been posted here:


In the link, click on "Packets" under the June 11, 2018 Committee of the Whole Meeting - sorry, couldn't link this one.

Renderings start on page 38.  Maybe someone can post these.
From the above:



Nice! digging the height, also covers up that weird parking lot wall of circa very nicly.
I like the height, the form and the setbacks.  I wonder what the brown cladding will be?
I'm somewhat concerned by the setbacks.
In this particular case, I think it's good to have a wide sidewalk area in proximity to the LRT station, but in the general case, I worry that the setbacks required by developments are too large, and are symptomatic of zoning that makes would make any parcels smaller than this one completely un-buildable.

I like that the paved areas of the landscaped area actually take into consideration pedestrian desire lines. 45 degree angles that connect between the front door and the crosswalks.

I'm really interested to see that too.  I really like this though.  This intersection should be really great in the coming years
It looks like pedestrians coming South on King will have to go all the way to Allen and then double back to access the unit facing King. I think there should be a gap in the garden facing King.
I didn't realize the city was so far along with their decision on the disposition of the ARC lands.
Always a big fan of Perimeter's work and this project is no exception. Looking forward to seeing this become reality.

I hope all those trees show up, it's probably the best thing about having huge setbacks.
