General Urban Waterloo Updates and Rumours
#11
Earlier this month David's Gourmet opened an "Express" location above The Works in Uptown Waterloo (92 King St South). Looks like it's focused on the lunch crowd, with salads, sandwiches, and a smoothie bar. They have a vertical sign up that's really easy to miss from the street (I must have walked by it a few times and never even noticed).

I'm going to pessimisticly guess that it will be paved over for parking.

Site was being paved over today and looking more and more like a parking lot.

Did the mysterious parcel of land north of erb the city bought for $2 million back in January ever get revealed? Maybe this is it.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Can't stay that way forever; the land will be worth too much.

That Ish and Chips parking lot would be a fantastic place for a food truck "pod" - throw in a few tables and umbrellas and you've got a sheltered space for a couple of trucks. It would be better than the spot at King & Bridgeport that food trucks have been using in Uptown. I also saw on Twitter that Carls' Jr has been scaring away food trucks parked on Willis Way so they may need a new place next year.

I think that is a fantastic idea.

The article says, " between 30 and 50 spaces." I don't see how that many cars would find into that lot even without provision for them to enter and exit the lot.

I still don't quite understand why we're ADDING surface lots uptown. Seems backwards to me.
