By Condo Culture
Kitchener - Waterloo, Guelph, and Cambridge will see an impressive collection of new condo developments launch in early 2022, and it’s exciting news for those looking to invest or find a new home. More details continue to pour in, but we are thrilled to share some early details and will provide up-to-date intel and information as it becomes available.
2022 is projected to see thousands of pre-construction condo units go into development between the Tri-Cities and Guelph, and these present excellent buying opportunities. With the continued growth of the region and lack of local supply, we expect these units will be scooped up fast and that means you need to act quickly! Be sure to sign up for our insightful One List emails and weekly newsletter so you don’t miss out on anything!
If you’re looking for a pre-construction condo to buy and move into years down the road, or if you’re looking to add real estate investments to your portfolio, then take a look at a few of the top projects set to launch early this year.
Station Park - Tower 3 and Tower 4 - 607 King Street West, Kitchener
Station Park is KW’s flagship luxury high rise condo development by VanMar Developments. With the first two towers nearing completion, we are excited to see the next phase of this community come to life. Station Park is a AAA location, opposite Google, Communitech, and D2L, and will be a core attraction within the Midtown and Innovation Districts going forward. If that isn’t enough, it’s just steps from the transit hub and go station, so moving around within and outside of the KW area will be extremely convenient for residents and visitors. With unparalleled amenities in and surrounding the buildings, Station Park is close to everything and anything you will need on a daily basis. Expect to see an initial release of units Spring 2022.
Moda - 310 Erb Street West, Waterloo
If you’re interested in a luxury, mid rise condo in Waterloo, then Moda will almost certainly catch your eye. Brought to you by the team behind Blackstone Condos (VanMar and Urban Legend Developments), Moda will feature distinctive loft inspired suites with a modern, stylish design. This development has 92 units and is centrally located near the highly sought-after Westmount District area with proximity to Waterloo Park and Uptown Waterloo. Expect to see an initial release of units Winter 2022.
The Birches - 405 Myers Road, Cambridge
Just east of KW, we now take a look at The Birches in the East Galt area of Cambridge - a luxury townhome development inspired by a love for nature with units expected to start selling Winter 2022. There will be a total of 84 towns available in this central location that’s close to the city’s downtown, the 401, public transit, restaurants, shops, and schools. The style for The Birches will be a modern farmhouse look and feel, and that is sure to appease residents who want a country flavour but within an urban backdrop. Brought to you by Granite Homes, an established builder with over 20 years of experience and inspired by innovative design, quality craftsmanship, and top-tier customer service.
The Jake - 101 Golden Eagle Road, Waterloo
The Jake is another beautiful project by VanMar Developments and you can undoubtedly expect a quality, luxurious build. We will see a mid-rise building with 6 stories and approximately 106 units - ideal for those who want to live the condo lifestyle, but not in a huge structure. Located in North Waterloo, this project is surrounded by convenient amenities and a short walk from the ION Light Rail Transit, giving you convenient access to the rest of the city. With close proximity to St. Jacobs, Laurel Creek Conservation, schools, stores, and other businesses of interest, this location has it all. Expect to see an initial release of units Winter 2022.
Q Condos - 20 Queen Street North, Kitchener
Q Condos is in the heart of downtown Kitchener’s Arts District and promises gorgeous views of the Waterloo region thanks to its 34 stories. Brought to you by Momentum Developments, the location is steps from Victoria Park, ION rapid transit and surrounded by restaurants, theatres and tech companies. With Momentum’s experience in other downtown Kitchener condo developments such as Garment Street Condos, Charlie West Condos and One Victoria, you can expect a quality project with strong amenities such as a state of the art cross training facility. Expect to see an initial release of units Spring 2022.
The Metalworks - 93 Arthur Street South, Guelph
The Metalworks Tower 4, is part of a unique urban lifestyle in downtown Guelph. This mid-rise development is helping to further shape Guelph’s immersive downtown area, and this beauty is right on the water with a gorgeous trail to explore. Guelph is already one of the top places to live in Canada, and key developments including The Metalworks are only adding to that narrative. This development by Fusion is very community-driven by nature, and will become a go-to destination for shopping, eating, entertainment, galleries to visit, and pretty much anything you need is at your fingertips including being mere minutes away from the downtown core. Expect to see an initial release of units Spring 2022.
Wallaceton - Phase 4 - Wheat Lane, Kitchener
Wallaceton by award-winning builder, Fusion Homes, continues to build out their energy-efficient townhomes featuring modern design and functional layouts to make effective use of every square foot available. These exceptional value towns have expansive views to enjoy, and the 2 or 3 bedroom units include either a covered patio or a balcony to relax and entertain on. This area features a generous amount of picturesque green space including the large RBJ Schlegel Park which is just across the street from the development, and you aren’t far from trails, eateries, and the future town centre. This immediate region has a ton of promise for the future with lots of encouraging proposals in the pipeline, and whether you want to live or invest here, your townhome can grow in value along with the evolving community. With a modern design in a desirable location, expect the final phase of this project to sell quickly during Winter 2022.
In addition to some of the featured developments above we expect to see a number of additional launches early next year such as;
