First building's framing is complete with a roof on.  The second building has a foundation.

Whatever this is, it's gone up to about 6 floors as of today. Pretty unfortunate motel to be behind, though.

In Kitchener, there appears to be some residential development that has sprouted pretty quickly on (or behind) Highland, between Westheights and Westheights.

Seems like calling this location as part of the "mature Forest Heights neighbourhood" is a stretch ... IMO

The Westheights area (a few blocks from this development) was built in the 1970s and 1980s. Don't know about this particular street, though.

Late 1980's.

You mean the "mature" bit?  It is in what I would have considered "Forest Heights".

Through the 70s and 80s.  Much of Driftwood was built up in the 70s already, and the Westheights Public School was built in the mid-70s.  Other parts in the late 80s, sure.  But even then, I think a 30-year-old neighbourhood is already pretty mature.

Do we know what's going up near Marten's Furniture on Weber?
