Lol, or the land across from there.  EIWO has been talking about a building for over 20 years!

That's what I'm talking about.  It's not just the Scott St that's been toying with my emotions, it's the corner lot too.

Does anyone know what's going on at the corner of King St. E. & Eby St. N in Kitchener? The exterior looks simple but freshened up with new windows.
I couldn't tell what was happening inside, nor any signs on the door.

Hospital parking, or Sunlife parking?

Work has been proceeding intermittently for at least two years on that building.   It's a wonderful interior, but I don't think the owners have a tenant for the space.

One of the first things they did was to paint over the old advertising sign on the side wall facing Eby (Braun Bicycles?).  I remember thinking at the time that that was a bone-headed thing to do!

I check this frequently, and there does not appear to be anything active.

Is that where Braun's locksmiths used to be?

This could be a great corner to develop, beside Fresh Grounds & The Yeti Cafe, across from the market... seems unbelievable such a beautiful looking building has sat empty for so long!?

Here is a nice story on how this is done in Toronto:

The Record has an update of the history of recent development in downtown Kitchener.

Quotes like the one below from the same articel are misinformed, and not helping to change the stereotypical impression many still have of downtown Kitchener:
"If somebody told me this was going to happen, even five years ago, I would have said they were on drugs like a lot of people in downtown Kitchener," said Haldenby.

Neat article, 3500 residential units in Downtown not including Sixo, that is very impressive.
Also that 10 of the projects will be at least One Victoria in size is new information.

Which buildings are the rentals in?
