The plan calls for a 2.5m (8.2 feet) pathway would have been nice to see a 5m landscaped path ... oh well

This building is asking for zoning changes before it can proceed, so it's not like the plans are set in stone. In fact, I hope the city pushes back on the plans at least design-wise.

The zoning changes were approved in exchange for the pedestrian path.

What? There was an informal public meeting on May 11 at which no decisions were made. (Minutes download link.) I do not believe there has been a formal public meeting at which the zoning change would have been able to be approved. If you have data to the contrary, please explain.

Formal public meeting date is still pending.

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.
