A small Ontario city on the rise looks to invigorate its downtown with an ambitious redevelopment plan that will provide this proud community with a vibrant, walkable urban centre.
Baker District is a massive mixed-use redevelopment project by Windmill Development Group Ltd. This new pre-construction project is located along Baker Street between Woolwich Street and Quebec Street in downtown core of Guelph.
Expected to welcome 500 new residents and create 190 permanent jobs, Baker District is a great investment opportunity in a promising city.
This new 500,000-square-foot integrated community will feature the main branch of the Guelph Public Library as its future anchor facility on Wyndham Street. Planned to incorporate spaces for retail, residential and commercial use along with public parking and an urban square, this magnificent re-imagining of a top-tier Guelph location aims to stimulate the city’s growth and economic prosperity.
Location & Neighbourhood
With a local population expected to rise by 1,000 over the next five years and some 3,000 new residential units, the city is committed to revitalizing its city centre into a vibrant community where residents can live, work, and play.
Even as the city looks to follow-through on urban intensification objectives and sustainability initiatives, one thing is already certain: downtown core is a compact, walkable neighbourhood that easily caters to pedestrians.
Scoring a sublime Walk Score of 84, this development is surrounded by numerous shops and services that ensure daily errands do not require a car. In addition to the city’s best restaurants and bars, this development is located conveniently near to the Guelph Concert Theatre, the city’s main central shopping mall Old Quebec Street Shoppes as well as 4,174-seat sports and entertainment facility Sleeman Centre, home of the OHL Guelph Storm.
