Managed to get a pic the other day

I had been trying to contact them in regards to renting this location for a live work space. But I could never find any contact information that I could get a response from (no phone numbers, just emails that kept getting returned). It wasn't till I had done my hundredth web search did I find a building permit application for medical offices

A building permit has been issued for a six-unit townhouse complex at 183 Victoria St N, across the street from the church-turned-into-restaurant-turned-into-church.

Feels a bit like all the grand visions of Victoria getting the treatment we expected of Hespeler, to eventually move away from cars-only, and eventually densify and become more welcoming, are still a long, long ways off, if townhomes is what we envision for this main street.

Regardless of what we envision (or what the city envisions) it's still the property owner's decision, within the constraints of the zoning bylaws -- which dictate maximum density but not minimum density.

But six townhomes replacing one single-family home hair salon is still intensification.

That's kind of where I'm at.  Not what I envisioned for a "mixed use corridor"

The intensification is good, just not within what I envisioned.

Really loving how the new LCBO fits in with the existing King Street buildings.  They're making good progress (sorry no pictures)
