Then I must be confusing this with some other project. I do recall reading recently about an approved trade off between construction variances and walking path in that area.

Welcome to Downtown Waterloo.

I find it amusing that thanks to inappropriate upzoning over 10 years ago, University was mostly redeveloped as residential only, and now commercial is popping up on every single side street to make up for it. At this rate, University Ave will have a more 2-Dimensional downtown than King St!

Northdale should be renamed Prica City.

I like the designs here, though I wonder if they're new or old? PG has different ones on their website. It still looks "cheap" to me, but the dark blue glass gives it a bit more colour.

They sure love using red and orange in their works, too.

I had to laugh about a comment someone posted there yesterday, blaming the apartment buildings for turning Northdale into a student ghetto.

Not certain if this is what jwillaimson is talking about, but there were a few comments left on the UT link, one I remember referencing a student ghetto.

Yeah. It was on the UT article. I'm not sure why they disappeared.

I guess they actually moderate comments on their showcase articles.

Nice to see in the renders "Pizza Fusion" has been replaced by the "Fresh Juice Bar". Also happy to see "The Coffeeshop" has survived as well.

"Sunview Suites caters to young professionals ..."

Are today's young professionals renting furnished apartments? I would think they would (in general) be wanting to choose their own furniture.

Furnished suites would work for students, I think. Or for AirBNB.
