General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours
(05-23-2019, 09:49 PM)BruceAshe Wrote: I was reading the agenda for the June 4th Heritage Committee meeting and in it there is a heritage impact assessment study for 45 Duke St W (currently Jack Burger). The study was done to see if there would be any impact on 48 Ontario St as the result of a 19 story building being built at 45 Duke W. https://lf.kitchener.ca/WebLinkExt/0/doc...Page1.aspx (Start at page 35 to see the report and renderings).

Looks like an appropriate building and scale for the area...

What a shame it will be if 48 Ontario is built out as proposed and a new tower built at 45 Duke, without either project incorporating 60/62 Ontario, the shabby former drycleaners building on the corner.  A mixed-use extension of the podium of the proposed tower would do the job quite nicely, istm.

That could be built independently, too.

As always, incorporating an adjoining property isn't always easy. It may not fit the concept, it may not fit in the budget -- or the owner may not be willing to sell.

Great find, looks like another solid project for Downtown.
