Century old tannery buildings have more personality than a parking lot

The Tannery District, Kitchener’s exciting new development is getting a new gravel parking lot. Oh yeah, and without any debate.
That’ll be nice! We’re always looking for an inner city potholed and muddy lot, surrounded by several other paved and often empty lots.
The Toronto developer in the midst of a $30 million redevelopment across the street said the parking lot will be needed for the commercial businesses leasing space in the main tannery building.
It’s too bad. It would be much better to keep the buildings and incorporate them into the urban environment, which would give the area more personality than a parking lot.
