Arrow Lofts phase II | 15 fl | Proposed
#1
Playing around with Kitchener's GIS mapping tool, I stumbled upon this building permit application:

This looks like the building slated for 120 Benton Street, next to the current Arrow Lofts.  15 stories plus underground parking, but no other details available at the moment.

It seems that there is little progress on the building permit, though -- what does "Status Letter Sent" mean?

I think it means that the developer has sent a letter to the city indicating their intentions or has submitted their plans for approval, but the city has not yet approved the project. This is what I assumed when seeing this in the past.

So the project is waiting for review at the City's planning department?

It would be terrific to see the second Arrow building and City Centre Phase II underway in the next couple of years.  Not to mention the Fusion project, it that ends up going forward.  And of course the two towers at 100 Victoria.

At 15 storeys, the Arrow project would be taller than I expected - wasn't it dropped to eight stories at one point?

Construction is starting soon on this one

Finally. What is the timeline? I thought this would have been built long ago, maybe they were just waiting for the LRT to be completed.

I'm expecting them to break ground this spring yet.

Auburn has been pretty busy with Barrel Yards, so the delay on this one is quite understandable.

Nice...while not exactly east end downtown Kitchener, it's still good to see something happening here.

Don't they have to start selling the units first before construction can begin?  Or would these be setup as rental units like Barrel Yards?

Are there any renders anywhere for this project?

That's correct -- they'll be rental apartments.

When the phase 1 was in the planning / early construction phase there was a render of the apartment building but I can't find it this morning.

I'll be honest, I'm surprised. Great news though.

Im curious to see what it'll look like though and how it integrates with phase 1

The original renders were not terrible, but not anything to write home about either, iirc. 

Is there official confirmation anywhere that this is moving forward, or are we dealing in "scuttlebutt"?

Spoke to someone about the details whether it would be for rental or purchase and they said no confirmed answer yet but if they were rentals then they would be luxury and modern rentals similar to their rentals at Barrel Yards.
