Oh really?

Or they try to at least. I think. Disagree?

More people live, work downtown

Waterloo Region Record
By Catherine Thompson


KITCHENER — More and more people are living and working in Kitchener's downtown, according to the latest figures from the city's planning department.

From mid-June 2013 to mid-June 2014, about 1,300 more jobs moved downtown, according to the figures from the city's growth management strategy, mainly because of continued growth in the tech sector. ...

My camera has crapped out on me, so no pictures, but I noticed today that the window frames are going into the new Beer Store at King and Francis St. They look pretty good, with the street level faux windows matching the windows on either side of the entrance. On the second floor, the faux windows look like sash windows (one up one down). As much as it pains me to say anything good about the Beer Store, it seems some thought actually went into the exterior of this one.

Renovations are continuing at 22 Charles St West (next to the building housing Thalmic Labs), A new glass front is being installed in the entrance/stairwell and new windows are being installed on the second floor. Not sure who occupies the building, if anyone, but it should look better when the work is completed.

It appears 22 Charles st is also being renovated for Thalmic Labs. According to this website the redevelopment is known as "Charles by the Park".

Great find!

Looking at the floorplans, my guess is that Thalmic is upstairs and they're deciding what to do with the main floor? One big tenant or a number of smaller ones.

Was there some recent news about the sale of Zion United Church on Weber street? I seem to remember hearing something, but not sure what.

Zion was recently sold, I believe to a Cambridge developer. I don't know when the congregations will be moving out, but I plan to visit it during Doors Open and will ask if there are any more details.
