OT Photoblog-o-rama: Travel Edition
In lieu of comments on the Doug MacLean-Lightning stuff or the CBJ’s signing of Kris Beech, neither of which inspires me to write, here are a bunch of pictures I took last weekend when I was in K-W. I was especially struck by how much more thriving downtown Kitchener looks than it did when I lived there eleven years ago. Lots more storefronts are filled, and not just by dollar stores and cheque cashing places. New lofts and other “brownfield” developments going on. That’s good to see.
New dorms on King St., part of WLU’s ever-expanding empire.
The Perimeter Institute in Uptown Waterloo. I don’t know what it is, but it looks pretty cool.
Ethel’s Lounge will always be TEH AWESOME.
Seagram Lofts in Waterloo. This was a museum when I lived there. A museum of BOOZE.
The moribund Waterloo Town Square mall has been turned inside out since I was last in town.
Now entering Kitchener.
The old Kaufman factory at King & Victoria has now been converted to the Kaufman Lofts.
New U of Waterloo Pharmacy School going up on abandoned industrial land at King & Victoria in Kitchener.
Downtown Kitchener house that only lowlifes would live in 😉
Glad to see the K-W Bookstore still going strong in the old neighborhood.
Olive & Bean appears to be a bit behind schedule — although apparently so is the entire project.
Wow, downtown Kitchener has its own CN Tower now. Okay, actually that’s John St. in downtown Toronto.
And I’m pretty sure the Sears Tower isn’t in K-W either. If it’s Wednesday, it must be Chicago.
