The former Ish & Chips is also having some works done.
I'm going to pessimisticly guess that it will be paved over for parking.

That retaining wall makes me think you're right.

That was my thinking.

I did some looking into things, back when it burned down, and apparently if the site is redeveloped within a couple years of the fire, then it can still qualify for a grandfathered parking requirement. Namely, that any square footage existing prior to ~1970 is exempt from parking reqs. If the lot is not redeveloped within that time, it will revert to modern standards (i.e. Where the HSBC was required to have ~10 spots.
I can't recall the exact length of time, but it was a low number of years.

I don't understand how the City of waterloo would potentially allow it to be a parking lot. It's King street!!

Has anyone checked building permits? Who owns the property now? The wall could simply be a way to make sure that the dirt on the Post Office side doesn't shift onto the former Ish & Chips side.
