This was posted in the Urban Kitchener thread, announcing the closing of the McDonald's at King and Moore.

That article also references the King's Crossing redevelopment, identifying a few businesses which have left the current plaza. The article states that the plaza "is also undergoing a total redevelopment, which is expected to push past that timeframe [late 2016]." I note the use of the present tense with a lot of optimism...how close is this redevelopment to happening?

I think probably sooner rather than later. The Tim Hortons building has already been torn down.

Fingers crossed for 'soon'!

The remaining tenants would need to find new spaces first, of course - the LCBO being probably chief among those.

This is listed as "in-progress" by Zehr.

Maybe we'll see some progress soon?

With the upcoming closure of the funeral home, I hope we won't have to wait too long for details of what comes next for this heritage property, so I thought I'd open a thread.

Personally, I think the complex would make a fantastic regional "arts hub", with space for offices, studios, rehearsal space and performance venues.  I  don't think I will hold my breath waiting for something like that, however.

I've seen stuff on this one... everyone will be absolutely blown away by this development. It's much, much more than what has been made public so far.

Insider you always jump in to threads claiming to have inside knowledge. And none of them have ever actually been revealed. Whatever source you're using, I think it might be broken :p

So when will the information become public? Before or after the details of the alleged Charles/Gaukel project?, he asked sceptically.

Haha! I knew someone would say something like this, but this one was too exciting not to say anything... maybe i should just keep my mouth shut? I did see some really cool stuff on this one I promise!

Yes, maybe exciting, but is it real?

You posted this one three months ago about Charles/Gaukel, and there is still no news of anything happening there.

For example?

This thread more than most, when I see it's been bumped I think "Yes! Progress!" and then am disappointed. Anything you've seen would be interesting to everyone hear, I'm sure. What kind of cool stuff are we talking?

Interesting.  That "true" for #4 makes this a huge site, with incorporation of a heritage building.

Last two questions (from me) for insider:

1) which proposal excites you more, Kings Crossing or the Charles/Gaukel mystery?

2) which of the two proposals seems likely to be made public first?
