Duh, that makes sense -- it's Lexington in the other direction!

Google shows 99 Columbia East as the final address before Columbia turns into Lexington at Marsland.

Was looking on Google maps and 99 Columbia W is at the corner with Albert

Pretty much the perfect size and massing for that spot

Wasn't there already a plan for development on that corner?

Edit: I guess that plan is no more. Here is where it was talked about: http://www.waterlooregionconnected.com/s...0#pid33680

Seems a bit strange that for around 100 units, in a family area, by parks, there are just 2 two bedroom units. Barrier-free one bedrooms sound good, but mostly only for a single person, instead of aging couples, unfortunately.

I hope that *something* gets built there. I'm tired of the current lack of property maintenance.

I really wouldn't call it a family area, the neighbourhood is 99% students. I think the only customer of a premium building in that area will be faculty, and the fact they're okaying living near students suggests they're probably young. I feel it's a reasonable reflection of the neighbourhood, especially when most other buildings in the area have mostly multi-bedroom units.

Why would barrier free one bedroom units be for a single person instead of aging couples?

Students, particularly graduate students, often have families including children (and in some cases, aging parents) who come with them for the 2-7 year stretch that it might take to get from starting a Master's degree to finishing a PhD. Not every student is a single person.
