SIXO Midtown | 28 + 20? + 12? + ? fl | Proposed
Just from reading MidTowner's comment above.

There is a co-working space going in there, I assume they are taking advantage of the temporary nature of that plaza.

It didn't to me, either, but they have been pulling out surface materials from the unit next to LCBO, and working inside.

Thanks a lot, Brenden, for explaining what it is. That does make sense for a plaza which won't be with us for much longer.
So is this development going to be called SIXO?

Quote:The group recently announced that despite a plan to develop on the five-acre site, the original Kaufman home  will not only be unwrapped, but it will be preserved.

The development plan, named SIXO, has not been released to the public yet and is awaiting City of Kitchener approval.
The Heritage Impact Study for the property
Very interesting. Thanks for posting that.

"SIXO Midtown" is what they are labeling this block now. All very exciting stuff. The article claims construction could start this time next year- I hope that winds up being the case.
Looks like the building will be unvailed in 60 days. http://sixomidtown.com

Nice speculative render of the transit hub buildings!

100 Victoria as well!  At this rate we'll have a real skyline within ten years ...
And it's in the Record. Notably, they now have the entire block.


Quote:The purchase of a small property paves the way for a big redevelopment of 2.4 hectares of land fronting along King Street West that will cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

The Zehr Group announced Friday it completed the purchase of 641 King St. W. in Kitchener, and now owns all of the land between the railway tracks and Wellington Street South, and into the block as far as the Ontario Seed property.

"It really allowed us to close off the entire block," said Zac Zehr, manager of development for the Zehr Group. "We can now move forward with the whole master plan vision we have for the site."
Hot damn! I'm giddy.

Also in that render: McDonald's is missing! Do they own that property too?'

Don't miss this other render on a secondary page. Very pretty! I CAN'T WAIT!

No catenary in the rendering. Time to complain that it's not an accurate depiction and assume they have no credibility. ... [stare]
Very exciting, I wonder if the presented project will be different than renders we have seen.
