Home to global tech companies and startups, a vibrant entertainment corridor and the future ION LRT line, Kitchener’s dramatic growth and transformation has spurred an influx of new developments in its downtown core. Leading the charge is Waterloo-based developer Momentum Developments which will soon launch Charlie West Condos, its third new residential project in downtown Kitchener since 2012.

Scheduled to launch sales this September, Charlie West Condos is located across the street from Victoria Park at the intersection of Charles Street and Gaukel Street. The idyllic location brings together urban living with nature as residents will be steps away from the tranquil pond and landscaped grounds of the historic park. The park was originally opened in 1896 and features countless amenities, including a fully licensed banquet hall, a playground and splashpad and a historic clock tower by the Gaukel Street entrance.

Also within proximity of the development is the city’s Innovation District as well as the upcoming ION LRT route scheduled to begin service in 2018.

“We’re really excited to have such a central location for Charlie West,” said Brian Prudham, Principal at Momentum Developments. “Being directly on the ION route and close to so many local amenities will make Charlie West ideal for anyone looking for a walkable neighbourhood for both work and play.”

Designed by ABA Architects of Waterloo, the 26 storey tower boasts a modern design characterized by clean lines, large balconies and a two toned exterior facade. Its sleek silhouette connects harmoniously with the surrounding streetscape through an elegant podium surrounded by majestic trees and lush landscaping.

Inside, the residence will house 246 stylish suites with thoughtfully designed layouts and the latest features and finishes. Plus with expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, residents will enjoy an abundance of natural light and unrivalled views of Victoria Park.
