Two 16-storey buildings planned for Old Carriage 
August 19, 2011 | Kitchener Post | LINK

Quote:Two 16-storey multi-residential buildings planned for 200 Old Carriage Drive will be closer to the road than generally required by the planning act.

On Tuesday the City of Kitchener committee of adjustment approved several minor variances that will allow builders to have smaller setbacks from Old Carriage Road and Homer Watson Boulevard than required.

“Some of the variances are actually very minor,” said committee member Bob McColl.

“It just troubles me a little bit that builders and designers are always wanting to push past what is allowed when they could redesign.”

The biggest diversion from the planning act is with the change of setback for the exterior side yard to 6.17m from the required 15m for one portion of the building.

Noticed last week that the second building is under construction, around the 3rd/4th floor.
The first building is now getting painted(?) And it looks like a two tone style very different from the typical drewlo buildings
