Plans to expand a marijuana cultivation facility in Kitchener will go ahead after city permits for the project came through.
On Tuesday, James E. Wagner Cultivation Corporation announced it had secured building permits to complete a set of planned renovations to their facility on Manitou Drive.
The facility will become the company's head office and will be its main growing location.
In a release, company officials said they expect to complete about eight grow or "flowering" rooms within 12 weeks, as well as a vegetation room, a trimming and processing room, a drying room and other areas.
Company officials said the facility is designed to provide about 345,000 square feet of production space with more than 130 production rooms eventually expected to be in place.
The first harvest is expected in 2018.
