Eaton Lofts
Update on the work taking place, no tenants have been found yet.

Quote:Perimeter does not want to lease the space to startups or tech firms, believing office space on the main floor deadens the street.

Thank GOD this is in the hands of someone competent
Article on the project from the Kitchener Post

I stumbled onto this … I think this is just a render, and not such an accurate one. I don't recall this view from the late 1970s.

That's not Market Square, that's King and Water.

So it is! Good catch on that. I better move the post! Smile
From the Kitchener Post article posted in the 345 King St W thread:

Quote:Perimeter is also in the midst of renovating the former Eaton's store at 276 King St. W that will feature a glass façade and up to 20,000 square feet of retail space.

"All the glass is showing up in the next two to three weeks," said Beattie.

"We have some action happening on a little bit of that space right now, and we think once we get it all complete and people see it, we'll have a lot more interest to pick up on.
I had a peek inside the construction tarps the other day while walking by, they have definitely opened up the street facing walls and it will look a lot different than before. Given Perimeter's fine work in the past, I think this one is going to turn out great.
