Not if Virerra Village has anything to say about that!!

Although that potential project seems further out.

Yesterday (Monday) they had scaffolding up around the restaurant building. Demolition soon?

The church isn't ready to be demolished just yet, they're still carefully packing away all the stained glass. The pipe organ was removed recently, though.

Scaffolding is going up on the facade of the Exclamation building. Covering the entire Duke side at the moment.

I wonder how the auction went?  I contacted the Waterloo Region History Museum when I saw (to my great surprise) that the church's WWI and WWII memorial plaques were among the items listed for auction.  By the time the auction was held, they had disappeared from the list of items, so I'm wondering if the Museum might have snagged them or the congregation realized, belatedly, that these were something to save/donate and not auction off?

At the risk of straying a bit off topic, today's Record has an interesting piece on the removal and restoration of Trinity's stained glass windows.  The article contains a link to a Trinity webpage that shows all the windows.  They are worth saving.

… and the scaffolding is down now, with no demolition seemingly having been done.

Further, it seems that they are setting up a DTK Condos sales office in the smaller office space next to ex-Exclamation:

I wonder if they didn't have the proper permit to do work around the ION wires?
