Totally differing markets and traffic demographics comparing Cowichan Station to Ontario maybe the OP can be more specific and share with us where she got her information from regarding the Cowichan Station "rumour"
was it talk in the Duncan Bingo hall or was it from Tims Manager?

Let's deconstruct this for a moment.

 

You have no information to provide. You make a large assumption. And you mock the original poster with the bingo hall comment.

 

Nicely done.

I said it was a rumour, nothing more. Just heard it from a friend. I don't know where they heard it from.

 

share with us where she got her information

 

HB needs her/his eyes checked or a better monitor. Don't you recognize the king of rock in roll when you see him?

Actually I did provide information. And as for the bingo hall I think it only affected you ...when I play bingo there is shop talk at every venue ive attended about the goings on in the area....would it have been better if I said the bowling alley or the legion hall?

Qwerty you rock .....mike has me all shook up now

New one coming to 754 Fort St...

For reference

ps: I'd love to see the rest of this entire block redeveloped and the Milne Building integrated into structures of greater density.

East of this building, sure, but the Ritz Hotel building and the little storefronts in between are well worth keeping and spiffing up. Just add levels behind/above the little buildings.

 

I really think Victorians should proceed with caution re: wiping out that "downtown neighbourhood" atmosphere around Fort and Blanshard and also further up Fort.

I heard a rumour that there are plans to build a Tim Hortons on the corner of Bench Rd and Trans Canada Hwy, just south of Duncan, where the old Galaxy Nightclub once stood.

Anyone else hear anything similar?

 

I don't know what's going in there, but I've noticed over my last couple trips up island that this site is under construction.

Fort St. renovation has barely moved, it's not coming any time soon.

Can confirm that there is a Tim Hortons being built here. Construction is well underway now, with most of the building all framed up. Should be open by end of summer I'd imagine.

Right! It's been underway for a little while now.

 

The Sooke location, on the other hand, appears to have stalled out. Work had begun at the site last December and to-date not much has changed.

People are also urinating inside the door of the cut through to the View street parking lot, inside the Van City bank machine area and inside the elevator (which is only open during business hours) that goes to those government offices. They’ve had to replace the carpet in there because of it. As for Tim Horton’s on Fort Work is slow, but last week they did install new ventilation on its roof to accommodate the food prep.

Maybe they need a grate that drains to the sanitary sewer system.

 

Or an attendant.
