Located on the historic site of the former Barra Castle, Barra on Queen is a 110-unit residence coming soon to downtown Kitchener. Sales at the development by Polocorp Inc. have been swift, but there’s still a great selection of suites to choose from. Prospective homebuyers can register online for the latest updates or visit the presentation centre located at 379 Queen Street South in Kitchener.


Construction on the project started last year and the latest drone footage reveals that work has reached the fourth floor as crews continue to pour concrete. When complete, Barra on Queen will rise six storeys above Queen Street South and feature exterior architecture by Mario Katsios that pays homage to the historic site. The design’s red brick, precast stone facade and sophisticated profile blend harmoniously within the established character of Kitchener’s heritage district.


Inside, suites and common areas by Element Design are well-appointed with sleek finishes and modern amenities. Prospective homebuyers can choose from a collection of 20 different floorplans, ranging in size from 650 square feet to 1,500 square feet. A series of seven three-storey townhomes starting at 1,466 square feet with driveways off of Benton Street are also available, offering even more choice.

Every home comes standard with exquisite features and finishes such as nine-foot ceilings, oversized windows with transoms, in-suite laundry rooms, and large private balconies or terraces. The open-concept layouts include thoughtfully-designed living spaces, bathrooms with granite countertops and ceramic flooring, and sleek kitchens with custom cabinetry, quartz countertops and backsplashes. Homeowners will also benefit from a full stainless steel appliance package consisting of a fridge, stove, over-the-range microwave and a dishwasher.


Perfect for entertaining friends and family, the amenities at Barra on Queen include an inviting lobby and visitors lounge, a fully furnished, hotel-style guest suite and a contemporary-designed party room complete with a kitchenette, television and plenty of seating. Other amenities include a patio and barbecue area, fully-equipped gym, a dog wash station, underground parking and a secured bicycle storage room.
