Popeyes Is Coming To Lansdowne Street

The sign for a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen franchise just recently went up at the new building beside Chapters on Lansdowne St. They're still busy working away but no doubt it'll be open for business soon. In the meantime, you can check out their menu.

Take A Look At The Design For A Proposed Commercial Development Going In On Lansdowne Street

The Peterborough Co-Op has returned to its roots and moved out to Highway 7 West to supply farmers. The original Rural Roots building, however, is being demolished to make room for a new plaza. It looks like a national bank is moving into the first building, but the second building is still available for lease to be ready for approximately Spring 2012. Take a look at the design of the proposed development:

There Is Road Construction Happening All Over The Patch Right Now

Lansdowne Street is not comfortable for driving right now

There is road construction everywhere right now in the city: on Parkhill near Monaghan, on Water Street between the Zoo and Trent. And then there is Lansdowne Street West, which is going to be very congested for the next little while as sections of the road are being widened and resurfaced. Currently it is down from four lanes to two lanes of access. The intersection of Brealey Drive and Lansdowne is also being worked on, which will hopefully alleviate it from being a high accident location.
