> Very cool, but is that a driveway to parking right in the middle of the podium?

Looks like it, but I suspect they [did not] have many options. I think it probably can't go beside the rail line for regulatory reasons (they already plan for an engineered crash wall on that side in lieu of a berm/setback). Right beside the IHT seems awkward to me due to the lot's wedge shape.

You're probably right EdM. Logical location given those restrictions.

I quite like it. Better fit than what they envisioned a few years back. (some pictures on floor 7 I believe at city hall)

Slightly different perspective in the Kitchener Post:
   

Post article is here.

The Record article mentions public comment are welcome until July 26th and the Post article mentions how to appear as a delegation, but where are the full details posted to have an informed opinion?
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

This is always a good question for Kitchener - unlike Waterloo, which posts full details of rezoning applications in an easy to access spot.

The city issued demolition permits for the sheds/storage buildings last month, and much of the eyesore that was the property's back yard has now been cleared out.

I don't see any updates on construction -- or even demolition of the Nougat building -- yet though.

Well there is a Stantec and ABA Architects billboard out front now.

Has Nougat moved its bakery to another location?

The building is still there (not covered by the demolition permits to date) and appears to be in use.
