Waterloo Corporate Campus

The No Frills brand is owned by Loblaws, not Sobeys. It's also operated on a franchise model (similar to Valu-Mart) rather than the corporate store model of Zehrs/Superstore/Sobeys.

Sobeys owns freshco (formerly price choppers) I don't know if Sobeys would benefit from having 2 stores across the street from each other or not? I could also see Rexall expanding, they did a major expansion at there Highland Rd. location.

Work is really progressing on this development. The Sobeys could be open within weeks by the look of things.

Such a hideous suburban project next to an LRT station. Yet another wasted opportunity... but it's good to see that change is starting to happen. Slowly.

Also "existing loft office" HAHA. What a joke. Who are they trying to fool?

It's hard to say without better renders, but it doesn't seem that bad. The buildings are at least abutting the street, which is a major improvement over other projects. The major question, though, is whether they face the street or not.

I assume by "loft" they mean that the building reuses the original structure of the old NCR building, and that it has exposed ductwork and such. Is that not the case?

I work on Northfield and pass this site most days. I have hopes, but they're not high. Something tells me that the buildings near the street (which still have a pretty big setback) are going to be those creepy faux facades that are not actually the entrances to the buildings. We'll see.

It looks like some progress, what with (some of) the parking behind the buildings. I don't think it's going to be too good on balance, though. The proof will be in the pudding: how degrading and dangerous will be the walk from Weber to the new grocery store?

I hope it will be more successful for Intermarket (the developer) than their Sportsworld Crossing project...
