General Urban Waterloo Updates and Rumours
I have a vague memory that the region bought that land and built the parking lot as temporary parking while traffic on King was disrupted by construction. Can anyone confirm this?
If that's true, they might be looking to unload it to a developer.

The buildings from 151 to 161 King St N are all vacant and boarded up. Did this project ever get zoning approval?
The first time that District condos went to to the zoning committee, they rejected it as it was 'too tall' (26 stories). Later they changed the design to two small towers and that was approved. In this time, the proposal became 'bust'
