These new condos are really going to transform the downtown core and will be the go to destination for the years to come. Located on prime real estate these two towers will have around 400 condominium units. One tower will be facing Duke and Young St  and the other one will face King Street. The tentative completion date for the first tower is December 2013.

In the video I make reference that the City Centre condominiums will be Leed certified. Here is a link to learn more about what Leed certification means:

Upcoming Loft and Condo Developments in Downtown Kitchener

Upcoming Loft and Condo Developments in Downtown Kitchener

By Warren McNeil,

We have been contacted recently by a few people who are thinking about moving into the Kitchener Downtown Core because of a couple of upcoming developments. These new developments are the “City Centre Condominiums” which is being developed by Andrin Homes and the Arrow Lofts which are being built by Auburn Developments. These new upcoming developments in downtown Kitchener are going to be happening in the next couple of years. Here is a quick breakdown.

The Centre Block Development by Andrin Homes is a multimillion dollar redevelopment of the centre block. This new development is expected to breathe new life into the downtown area. Andrin homes proposes a mixture of residential development, ground floor retail and connected private and public outdoor spaces.

For more information about this new development, please see the FAQ for the Centre Block proposal 

The Arrow Lofts are a factory conversion of the old Arrow Shirt factory. Here is a breakdown of what the lofts will be like:

  • converted factory with 134 units
  • 16 storey building with 184 units
  • 900-1300 sq.ft
  • 12 foot ceilings
  • top floor units are proposed to be 2 bedroom units with a nice view of downtown Kitchener and Victoria Park

Here is a quote from Auburn Developments about the new Arrow lofts that are going to be built:

“Combining Kitchener’s rich heritage with modern, spacious design, Arrow Lofts will see the conversion of the former Arrow shirt factory into a beautiful residential space.  Located on Benton Street, this exciting two-phased development will include 134 units in the converted factory, and 184 units in the new 16-storey building just to the west.  Ample parking and nearby amenities will make Arrow Lofts the perfect base to take advantage of Kitchener’s vibrant city life.”

In addition the afformentioned developments, there is also the Tannery District which I mentioned the other day in a blog post…

“The Tannery District“. The redevelopment of this property was a result of the city’s 30 million investment in the new U of W’s School of Pharmacy which is located nearby. The Tannery District will be filled with restaurants, retail and office space catering to emerging technology. The Tannery’s central courtyard will be a venue for special events and festivals.

These new developments are really going to help transform the downtown core. In five years, downtown Kitchener is going to look alot different. If you don’t want to wait for these condominiums to be built, there are plenty of resale lofts and condos available.
