Location & Neighbourhood
Louie Waterloo Residences will be located in one of Canada’s smartest and fastest-growing cities. Waterloo has been named one of the top 10 regions to live in and continues to become more livable and desirable year over year. It has a robust economy and is conveniently connected to the GTA making real estate here a hot commodity. This site is an excellent place for students, families, and investors looking for the perfect window of opportunity.
The region glows with a vibrant culture, rich history, award-winning architecture and a plethora of stunningly lush outdoor spaces to explore.
It is also home to premier universities such as the University of Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier accommodating over 50,000 yearly students. This means thousands of students who need comfortable and all-encompassing off-campus housing, are willing to pay a premium for a home in the area. It is also worth mentioning that rental rates for one-bedroom units in the area have increased by ten percent each year between 2015 and 2017.
Active residents will enjoy the neighbouring wildlife found here including the David Johnston Research & Technology Park, Veteran’s Garden, RIM Park, and Waterloo Park – which are great locations for getting out and enjoying nature. In total, the region contains up to 3,000 acres of parks, 6 conservation areas, and over 20 golf courses meaning you don’t have to travel far to partake in fun-filled outdoor activities.
This development site will also sit conveniently close to urban amenities inclusive of a wide range of retailers, restaurants, bars, cafes and grocery stores. These places can be found within walking distance and biking around the area is also highly recommended. In fact, Waterloo has proposed a pilot project which will add a new network of bike lanes to better connect the city for cyclists.
