General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours
I'd like to see the city stepping in on things like this to ensure that it happens.

I heard through the grapevine that a building will be going up on that site.  It won't be as tall as the Iron Horse Towers and it will taper  down towards David Street.

From Frank Etherington's blog.

Quote:an attractive condominium development on the former Nougat Bakery site and the ugly, neighbouring auto business next to the Iron Horse Trail. The development — an 11-storey condo fronting on Queen Street dropping to a six-storey building at the rear facing David Street — will start with demolition of existing buildings. Construction is likely to continue into 2018.
The five storey "step down" at the back seems interesting - the terraces (one hopes) would get some terrific afternoon sun.  Look forward to seeing a render.
Looks like the conversion of the one RBC building (on Ontario) to condos is just about done. Saw them putting in AC units the past few weeks. 28 units going in there, I imagine the windows spanning hthe entire building must offer a pretty nice view. Emailed to check on them and apparently they're looking for an August 1st move in

Might be nice to live in a building with a licenced cinema and a cafe in the basement!
Has anyone seen any details on the development referenced above by Frank Etherington?
Wow, I didn't know about that conversion. Are they individually owned condos, or apartments? I haven't seen any listing for condos there.

Frankie spilled the beans?  Wink
Geotechnical/hydrological drilling ongoing this morning at the Manulife parking lot bordered by Water/Joseph/Francis/Charles.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
163 Palmer St, next to the Iron Horse Trail, is getting rebuilt.  The nasty-looking back addition will go, and a second story will be added instead.

Here is the pre-construction state (thanks to Mr Google):

And with the demolition work started:
