Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

The Crown on King | 18 fl | Proposed

With the sign coming down, might that mean it's dead? Or just that it's moving ahead, and demolition is going to start soon on those properties?

I wish they would do something here, it's been in a state of disrepair ever since the development proposals began to surface.

Just a touch under $10M an acre.  Granted, they have site plan approvals etc, but surely this is some kind of a new record for land prices in K-W?

I noticed that 6 Elgin, which is part of the parcel and was until recently occupied, has been boarded up and utilities shutoff. Perhaps the parcel was purchased?

6 Elgin and 130 King St N have been demolished. All three demo permits look to be posted to the fence.

Will update with pictures later.

The builder's name on the permit is a number company so hard to tell who bought the parcel:
   

Do we still know if the project is still going ahead as originally planned, named, and approved? Or is the new owner just clearing the parcels to reduce maintenance cost and risk?
