That's the one.  I thought it was just being done now - hazards of not living in K-W anymore!

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."

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.
