Waterloo office project spurred by light rail line

The Zehr Group has started construction of a $9-million office building in north Waterloo, spurred partly by its proximity to the future light rail transit line.

To be called Northfield Station, the 5,940-square-metre (66,000-square-foot), three-storey building will be located at 139 Northfield Dr., near the Conestoga Parkway and adjacent to the proposed Northfield station of the light rail line.
