That open plaza has been nearly screaming for some kind of re-work. Good to see there's a plan.

I've always thought some sort of patio would fit really well on the ground floor

Not sure why such a large parking lot was needed. I guess it is a fairly large or growing business with lots of trucks?

Some additional definition (permit 18-105558 MS), and this makes a bit more sense now, it really is a retain business:

"Permit is for interior alterations to an existing detached house to create a new furnace and fireplace store."

Petro Canada at Victoria and Edna closed up. Was hoping for a modernization while the construction surrounded them, but the sign says permanently closed.

Do they own the entire building?  I'd assume so.

Interesting property acquisition.  I wonder if they already own some of the adjoining lots?

Looks like 112 Queen St S is getting a face lift (beside the old Schlichter's building). Full scaffolding, plywood and nets have gone up yesterday.

The whole core area from Uptown to Downtown is going to be so different in ten years with all of this development activity proposed, it's very exciting.

The project at 624 King St W is new to me.

That's much nicer than what I thought I had heard, just a 2 floor office building.
