This week, plans for the former Kellogg’s factory were unveiled and I am thrilled with the possibilities of the enormous space.

Opening in winter 2018, The Factory will be the site of North America’s largest indoor ropes course. It will also include a 21,000 square foot trampoline park, laser tag, an arcade and so much more fun for the entire family to enjoy.

Meanwhile, having successfully launched Tobermory Brewing Company, former Londoner Matt Buckley returns to operate Silverstacks Brewery in the factory’s powerhouse building. There are also plans in place for a supporting restaurant.

Finally, the office tower is looking for tenants, giving them a unique option with one of the best views in the city.

100 Kellogg will soon be filled with people once again, having fun, working, eating and drinking. This will have a significant economic impact on our city and will draw visitors from across the province and beyond.

I would like to thank E&E McLaughlin Ltd. for their investment in Old East Village and London. This is such an exciting opportunity for our city. The Factory and the rest of the amenities that will be at 100 Kellogg will be a major destination.

This week I was also in Ottawa with a number of my council colleagues for the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Annual Conference.

We had many important and productive conversations about our rapid transit plans, affordable housing and high-speed rail. We again received positive signals from our provincial partners with regard to our rapid transit plans. We are ready and we are waiting. We have a strong business case and I am feeling energized and more optimistic than ever before after this last round of talks. 

Sincerely,
