13-storey condo in Kitchener’s Belmont Village

Many would assume this is simply a spirit of Christmas, but its actually a very old tradition – Pine trees atop construction projects are part of a very old tradition which dates back to ancient Scandinavia.  They are often hoisted up to the top storey of a building to signify the completion of the last floor.  I even read that the evergreen is symbolic of a project completed with no lives lost.  Now that is something to celebrate!

New development firm tackles project in downtown Kitchener

The Huck Glove development marriage between old and new

KITCHENER — Architect Matt Bolen is combining two buildings — an old factory and a new glass-walled office — in a project that reflects the changes happening around the downtown.

All of the approvals and permits are in hand for the $250-million development at Victoria Street South and Bramm Street, which will include three condo towers containing 669 units, and an office-commercial building that will be constructed around the 112-year-old former Huck Glove factory.
