Nobody seriously has that idea.

In the article there we were reminded that not only do heritage districts - which comprise 1/3 of downtown Kitchener - have height and style guidelines, but that they even extend into all properties abutting the heritage zone. I'd say my assertion still stands pretty close to as-made. When we see a development jump deep into one of these zones, ones that resemble the apartments across from the library, or some mid-rise modern structure befitting the core of our tech hub, I'll gladly take it. If it should ever happen.
A Vive Developments coming soon sign has appeared on the Margaret frontage.
