Rec'd Centre

Ontario : Kitchener-Waterloo
Location #16108

Description
The "Islamic Association of K-W" purchased an 11 acre plot of farmland on the outskirts of Kitchener in 1998 with high aspirations of building the "Largest Islamic centre in Canada". However, securing funding was tough and no action was taken until 2005 when the city issued a building permit for a "Multi-Purpose Recreational Facility". Seemingly little action took place from then on, until a permit for plumbing was added in 2007.


It appears as though the building has sat vacant since then, despite a 2016 news article stating that over $2M in donations had been secured and progress was to begin shortly, with the building expected to be complete and active within a few years. Well, it's now 2019 and the building is still a concrete shell. The ceiling is leaking, there's no flooring anywhere to be found, a collection of a couple dozen toilets, light fixtures and HVAC components lay vandalized and rusting away inside.
