Looking at the now-vacant Charles Street bus terminal in downtown Kitchener, one may ask: what will become of it?
Closed as of September of this year, community members have suggested using the site for affordable housing, a recreation centre, a relocated Aud or to expand Victoria Park. In the short term, the site could be used for parking, office leases or pop-up cultural events to keep activity going on-site until it’s redeveloped.
The region plans to consult the public in a number of ways about the redevelopment, including public meetings and design brainstorming sessions.
Regional council will get a report in late spring spelling out a timeline for the project, a plan of all the studies and work that has to happen for redevelopment to proceed, along with and an estimated cost for those studies.
