There is a ton happening in downtown Kitchener these days, and one of the most highly anticipated developments will soon be on full display in the quickly emerging Arts District. Q Condos will stretch up 34 storeys and make a significant impact on Kitchener-Waterloo’s rapidly evolving skyline.
This sensational Kitchener condo project is by Momentum Developments - a talented local company that has delivered exceptional buildings including Garment Street Condos, One Victoria, Charlie West, RED Condominium, and several others.
Q Condos will boast an incredibly modern highrise while paying respect to the original 20 Queen Street North building by developing around the historic structure which was originally erected in 1917. New and old intersect in a beautiful way, and as a result, Q Condos will exude character, charm, and originality.
This building will ooze creative flair to fit seamlessly into its arts-driven neighbourhood, and all types of professionals will draw inspiration from this beautiful destination. Between the stunning building, remarkable units, fantastic amenities, and visually engaging community with tons to see and do, life on Q will provide an outstanding platform for a grand lifestyle in the not-so-distant future.
Let’s take a deeper look at the 34-storey building and what the future holds for this beauty. The philosophy behind Q Condos is built on three core pillars - history, art, and engineering. The sleek and slender structure will feature large window wall glazing, coloured concrete panels, and perforated metal panel screens. You will immediately notice a certain elegance and attention to detail from top to bottom, so even the sharpest observers will be impressed.
Q Condos will go on to become a flagship highrise for the area, and will be seen and admired from many miles away. Momentum Developments always makes statements with each of its buildings, and Q Condos fits their brand in a very natural way.
Comfort, high-quality livability, and jaw-dropping views will become commonplace within the suites at Q Condos. Whether you want to take in the sights and sounds from Victoria Park, or the urban landmarks and hustle and bustle from across the city and beyond, life on Q provides incredible sightlines in abundance no matter where your eyes decide to look.
Before even entering a suite, you are greeted by an oversized 3’ x 7’ solid-core wooden door with a lever handle - setting the tone and expectations for what lies just behind it. Inside, there are high ceilings for an instant feeling of spaciousness, open concept designs assist in making the most of every square foot, designer cabinets, granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplashes, designer vinyl flooring, full height double glazed windows and balcony doors, and that’s just the beginning.
If you love technology, then controlling your home here will be a true pleasure as there’s a smart thermostat for heating and cooling, smart entry door locks, and wireless internet access in every suite and throughout the many common areas. The building will leverage Rogers’ 1 valet System for smart access control, security, and its parcel room. Q Condos has lots of built-in tech - perfect for managing your suite and life.
There will be a great variety of amenities at Q Condos, whether you want to relax on the beautifully landscaped terrace (pictured above) and take in the expansive views and city activity, play sports on the virtual simulator, workout in the state-of-the-art fitness facility, entertain guests in the party lounge and host them overnight in the comfortable guest suite, or get your creative juices flowing in the co-working spaces - you got plenty of options here.
You can also securely store your bike in the bicycle parking room, easily buzz in guests using the smart entrance phone security system, or grab a bite to eat or a beverage from the lobby’s KitchenMate. Q Condos has been brilliantly thought through with residents at the forefront of it all, so you can live how you want to in a convenient way.
One of the most important aspects of condo living is the location - life on Q is in the heart of Kitchener’s Arts District and the Innovation District is a short 5-minute stroll down the street. There are countless dining options in the immediate area - some of our team’s short-list favourites include 271 West Restaurant, TWH Social, Ellison’s Bistro, The Crazy Canuck, Grand Trunk Saloon, and The Rich Uncle Tavern.
The Museum and the Conrad Centre for Performing Arts are on the same block as Q Condos, and just steps away lies Victoria Park, Centre in the Square, Apollo Cinemas, City Hall, and so many other attractions to discover. If you currently work or have aspirations of working in the technology industry, then Google, Vidyard, Skywatch, Applyboard, and many other tech companies are just down the road.
There’s an endless number of places to visit on a daily basis - life on Q provides access to a ton of public amenities and a vibrant culture to experience both inside and outside of the building. Plus, the core of the area’s public transit is mere minutes away on foot, so getting around the tri-cities and beyond is easily done when Q Condos is your home address.
When you think about what life can look like for you or your tenants at Q Condos, think about the phenomenal lifestyle opportunities, as they come in abundance.
No matter if you’re looking for a new future home to buy or are an investor looking to add to your growing portfolio - Q Condos has a variety of unique floor plans to select from. There are 12 one-bedroom options, 7 two-bedroom options, and 2 penthouse options to explore, so 21 in all.
The 1H floor plan (displayed above) is a one-bedroom option as an example, so you can get a general feel for an average unit’s layout. If you want a floor plan that maximizes each square foot, then you will appreciate how Q Condos has designed each one with its resident's needs and wants reigning supreme.
Q Condos is an extremely exciting development for the Kitchener-Waterloo community, and it will help to push the condo market forward here while ramping up supply which is so desperately needed in the area given the relentless pent-up demand.
