Lump in 2 Universities and a college as well (Although Conestoga has been successfully using the Honk app for a couple years now)

WLU also accepts Honk at its pay-and-display lots -- so there is choice for those who cannot (or prefer not to) use a mobile app for payment.

Well its good to see some consistency in the app local lots are using.

Aardvark drilling was doing some sampling at the former site of 155-159 Herbert St the other day. The long standing sign on the lot says that is owned by the city and is planned for development uses in the future. I seem to recall that the city was renting the former homes out before deciding to demolish the homes as part of a longer term parking strategy, but couldn't find anything to back that memory up.

Is that what they are doing!? This has been ongoing for a while. Whenever I walk past it I wonder when they are planning to demolish the thing and how much density an infill development could get away with. I guess they are kind of doing that... Similar to the Alexandria condos I imagine.

Designated heritage building, no?
