On Monday, the last of 700,000 bricks was laid on Dundas Place by Mayor Ed Holder along with Ward 13 Councillor Arielle Kayabaga, the construction crew and members of the Dundas Place community!
We also heard from a few local business owners including Angie from Grace (shown below) who opened her restaurant during construction.
With the “floor” complete, this also marked the reopening of the street from Wellington Street to Ridout Street. The street will remain open as finishing touches continue throughout the winter and into the spring.
Celebrate the Holidays on Dundas Place
On Friday afternoon, only a few days after reopening, the street was host to a number of activities, showcasing the benefits of having our newly finished flex street in the downtown.
Activities were spread out from from Market Lane to Wellington Street from 4-7 p.m. The street came to life with music on stage at Clarence & Dundas, live window painting, the chance to snap a picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus, pick up a free winter bouquet and most importantly experience all the shops along the way!
Building projections at Fanshawe and the jumbo "lite-brite" were also huge hits!
Stay tuned for more information from the City of London as preparations are underway to celebrate the official grand opening of Dundas Place in the spring of 2020.
