Hey now, I'm not claiming to to have any, uh... Insider information. I'm as speculative as you guys are! Panamaniac seems to be picking up the same hints though...

Insider has now been vindicated, no?

I believe so, it's unfortunate but I haven't see any activity from Insider in a long while, I always found their posts informative.

Maybe they got tired of our impatient teasing.

Happy to see them growing so much.  I wonder if there would be some way to connect the buildings.  Having them side by side with no connection seems like a waste.

I think this is just on the former Taco Bell property:

I think it is to but I don't know for sure. According to this website the developer owns both properties. http://www.profunds.ca/invest-westmount.html

I only said that because based on the billboard's render it looks like the driveway entrance to Angel's.


Does the billboard on the Victoria side show a different render?

I am thinking it is significantly cheaper for individuals to put on a coat and go outside for a fresh 20 metre air break. Thalmic likely will need a larger space over the next 3-5 years and so newer digs might mean they would sell the first smaller building.

Work has begun on renovating the former Budds store in Downtown.

Two restaurants on the main floor (no mention of anything for the basement). At what point does Downtown hit "peak eatery", I wonder? I think five or six new places have opened just since the beginning of the year.

My young grasshopper. There is no such thing as too many restaurants. Food is of the essence.

And it's one of the few storefront businesses that can't be replaced by an online competitor.
