Relatively recently a new sign has gone up at 435 Wes Graham Way for a new office building. Whether this project is the same as the one detailed below from a few years ago, is unclear.

TECHParkIV- not sure if this is the name going forward
Location : 435 Wes Graham Way
Developer : Cora Group
Project : 3 story office building, with 100,000 SQFT of space. The building is supposed to be an extension of the Accelerator Centre.

According to Google Maps, 435 Wes Graham Way is right next to the R+T Ion stop.
And, bland as it is, this is more than a one storey building. Progress!
Three storeys, closer to the stop than anything else in R&T Park, means no new ground is being broken, development-wise. "Pre-leasing for summer of 2014"?
The new sign has revised dates but I can't remember what year only that it is a future date.
I think this could be "the building that gives back" - a net-positive building that is a collaboration between Sustainable Waterloo Region, Cora, UW, Ernst & Young.

I went past there yesterday, and the building next to the station is 415 or 420 Wes Graham Way (whichever one it is, the other is across the road). 435 may be closer to the roundabout.

Not really progress for the Tech Park.
Open Text built a 5 storey building at the far end. The real kicker is how much parking surrounds the building.
Are there many one storey buildings? Accelerator Centre, Stantech, Agfa, RAC 1&2, SAP are all three storeys. Optometry and CIF are weird split-levels. I think TechTown is the only one storey building.
So this week there are nearly identical signs for 415 and 420 Wes Graham Way. So it looks like we could see two separate buildings go up in the near future.
