There was a fair amount of activity at the corner of Highland Rd and Spadina Blvd this week where an old gas station used to be, likely just soil testing but hopefully the site of an exciting project someday.

The new dental clinic at Hespeler Road and Eagle/Pinebush appears to be open for business. Can't tell if the street-side doors are in use, but the option is there at least.
Farther down the road, another gas station has been torn down. No idea what it's going to become (if anything).

The house located at 245 Highland Rd has recently been demolished.
further details of the project can be found here.

I saw that what was formerly a "coming soon" Revel sign at the corner of Bleams Road and Century Hill Dr is now a realtors sign. Odd since the property is a woodlot next to the designate Steckle Woods.

Between this, the issues with one of their townhouse projects and the selling of the David Street property, could Revel be in trouble?

A crane is about to go up next to the Economical Insurance office on Riverbend Drive in Kitchener. This page says there's a 6-storey parking garage going in, so I suppose it's for that.

The older of the two Petro-Can stations at Ottawa and Strasburg has been closed, and its tanks are currently being excavated.
No word yet if anything is set to replace it.

The new parking garage for Economical is well under way. The progress is clearly viewed from the highway.

Does anyone know what is planned for the north-east corner of Strasburg Road and Block Line Road? The trees were removed several years ago. Since then they started to dig and then stop. Dig for a week of so and then stop again. They really started to excavate the site this fall but they stopped again. The depth of the hole suggests underground parking for a high rise building but I've yet to see any indication of what is planned.

I live just up the street from this. I understand a highrise is planned but the glacial progress indicates it's on a slow burn financially. Wish I knew more.
