Previously known as Kitchener’s Historic Warehouse District, we proposed to build upon this legacy by retaining the site’s cultural heritage alongside modern initiatives and necessary infrastructural changes. With the implementation of a multi-modal transit hub, mixed-use development, and much more green and open spaces, it is envisioned that this district will further develop into a tech-cluster, seeing small companies launch from the district, and contribute to creating a prosperous local economy.

The multiple parking lots and abandoned properties were addressed through strategic brownfield development with the goal to attract commercial and residential development and investment to this Innovation District.
