General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours
#31
The lot at the corner of Weber and Scott streets downtown Kitchener is up for sale by CMA Reality

The interesting thing is that not only is the lot being sold, but the adjacent building (EIWO Canadian Building - (82 Weber Street East) is being sold with it. And they must be sold together.

This property was "re-zoned and approved to re-develop an 11 storey building with 120 units (condo/apartments) consisting of 10 floors residential and 1 floor commercial with 1 level underground parking and surface parking."

That lot has been up for sale for a while (2-3 years). I'm not sure whether the building was always included.

Behind that lot is a run-down/boarded up vacant home with row houses built on as an extension. I believe it's owned by the same people. It's heritage protected, so they're probably waiting for it to be degraded to a point where they could seek permission to knock it down. I'm not sure if that would be included in the listing or not.

Based on the (bad) picture in the listing, it looks like it is included.

Yes, the row of heritage townhouses has always been part of the site. I don't recall the Eiwo building being included in previous news about the site.

Amazing how it looks so much bigger than the parking lot that was there before.

I'm just so happy to see one of the Downtown King St gaps filled. Even if it's with a Beer Store!.

I noticed the property at the south-east corner of Glasgow and Belmont is up for sale. This could be a great development opportunity.

You mean the site under development for the new apartment complex, or the Warwick Marking plant itself?
