SIXO Midtown | 28 + 20? + 12? + ? fl | Proposed
Only a couple of weeks this time.

In the meantime, they are definitely spending money promoting the project using online advertising.

I wonder if the provincial measures forced them to reevaluate any of their aims with marketing and overall presentation.

The cynic in me still doubts that we'll ever see anything like what is shown in the renders at that site. I hope to be proven wrong.

It remains to be seen whether the province’s measures last week will significantly slow the market, but people are talking about it, so maybe that is the cause for the delay.

No matter what, it’s practically inevitable that the market will slow. I wonder a lot about the likelihood of any given proposal squeaking through to completion ahead of when that starts. This one is pretty ambitious, so I really wonder.

At the moment, 100 Victoria and SIXO are the only two significant and active condo developments in downtown, and 100 Victoria is mostly sold already (Charlie West will likely be somewhat later) so I expect that there should be enough demand to get SIXO pre-selling and under way.

I find it pretty unprofessional for the constant delays. I mean if you're going to keep delaying it, why have a countdown?

I'll put money that they will delay it again come mid May.

I thought that some of the new provincial measures only applied to the greater golden horseshoe which we are not a part of. If true, wouldn't that encourage more investment in our area?

My understnding is that we ARE part of the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

You are correct: https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/050416

I was confusing it with the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

For some reason, I think they're having issues with the city. Just a hunch. They talk intensification, then balk when it happens.

That, or they are having some financing issues.

Seem to me that Kitchener is so slow at getting things done.

Charlie West is already approved (i think?) and they are about to open a sales centre across from City Hall... I have a feeling it will be completed much sooner than we all think.

Site plan is approved?  If they are going strictly by the zoning that's possible, but if they are asking for any variances (which I do suspect they will, especially for setback toward Manulife) it'll end up in council, and that hasn't happened yet.  There is a building permit application in the system for renovations to 201 King W to turn it into a sales centre but it hasn't been approved yet.  I assume this is for Charlie West.

I do think SIXO is closer to starting pre-sales.  Now, which one will sell quicker and be able to break ground earlier remains to be seen.
