Unless the council decides to extend the downtown exemption again, I personally doubt they would get the fees waived if they miss the 2019-02-29 deadline for an issued building permit.

But the original sale of the land said that phase one had to be started by a certain date and phase two as well.  Not that they could really enforce it though.

Anyone have a picture of what tower two is supposed to look like? Or do we not know yet?

This is one of the project renders from a few years ago that has both towers.

Imgur no longer allows sharing on forums or other third-party sites. The best way would be to upload it as an attachment.

(Imgur still allows you to link images, you just have to use the direct link to the file and the usual forum tags.)

Looks like they're going to start selling phase two soon, with a new name this time. All I've seen so far is the website http://youngcondos.ca/ .

I walked by the original sales centre today, and the signage has been removed. Looking inside I saw walls have been ripped down to studs, with a pile of used insulation in the middle of the room.

I was surprised to see a stack of new drywall inside, but I suppose they're going to reuse the building for phase two.

This is definitely a first for the region!

I wonder if they will increase the height? 12 stories seem so little compared to all these other 30+ proposed towers near this building, lol
Reply
The FSR for King in Kitchener, IIRC, is 3, 6 if you max all bonusing. So if they wanted 12 storeys, they would need to maximize all other bonusing and leave half of the lot completely empty in order for a 12 storey building to maintain that 6 FSR.
Reply
Of course you can still request a variance beyond the bonusing, but the process gets more challenging. The bonusing alone can be done within the rules and then the developer avoid public hearings.
