I've been waiting for them to do that for years.  There and at Queen and Weber.  At least there it looks like there could be some potential

I've always thought the Allen Square building had potential for a nice patio, especially being next to an LRT station now.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Me too!!!

All of these have massive re-purposing potential. I don't know if the buildings could handle it, but I'd love to see it.

Re-purposing for?  Aren't they already successful office spaces?

Sorry, repurposing of their ground floors for something with more street level interaction.

Just saw a post that the Weber Street Public House (former mother's pizza\bennys) is closed and a notice posted by the landlord.

Has anyone tried the food at Yurub at 146 King Street West?  Apparently it's an authentic Somali restaurant but it could easily pass as another shawarma place.

I walked in the other day because I noticed it was open and was surprised and confused enough by how much it looked like a sit-down restaurant that I didn't want to look stupid and ask if there was shawarma take-out. I'll get over myself eventually, but it is pretty nicely laid out inside, with several 4-top tables and perhaps some booths. When I'm ready for a sit-down lunch and to ask questions I'll give it a try for real. Comfortably dark with lights directly above the tables. It's not fine dining by any means, just simple chairs and tables, similar and perhaps a bit nicer decor to Pho DNK across the street, but mostly just new and up-to-date.

I hear there is a new concept coming where you just buy whatever ingredients you want and take them home. You install some of the same equipment in your house that they have in a restaurant, and you can just make whatever dishes you want! I think it’s going to be big.

Is that a first in K-W?  I am not familiar with Somali cuisine.
