Apparently they have not noticed the DTK tech cluster yet though. And the R&T Park is driving housing demand all the way in Cambridge?

Oh well.

Most people from outside of the region are quite out-of-touch with what's happening here. They went to UW 15 years ago or so, didn't venture outside of the King/University/Westmount/Columbia block, and still think they have the region figured out. It's continues to be all about UW and Blackberry as far as they understand.

They are about to open a sales centre at The Shops in Waterloo Town Square... I was in yesterday and meant to take a pic but didn't. Next to the new retro video game store.

Anyone want to take a guess how many new renders of this we'll see before it starts getting built?

I'm going to say two more.

This lot has been empty for like 10+ years, I don't even know what the hold up is.

Any other developers would have had something built on it ages ago

Only 10 years! The former Canadian Tire site on King St E is probably over 20 years, and the lot on King St E between Cedar and Madison has been empty at least 40 years. The lot next to Alexandra school condos (an Auburn property) has also been much more than 10 years in the making. And I think the Arrow 2 property was at least 15 years between the factory outlet closing and the start of excavation.
