We are living in interesting times here in Kitchener-Waterloo! The new LRT corridor is buzzing with construction, both transit-related and new developments. Around the corner from my house, the local tattoo, pizza, and all-night massage parlours are being replaced by an upscale mix-used development with a large underground parking garage. The real estate market has taken a surprising turn, with a high buyer-seller ratio driving both sales and prices. Planning is occurring around station areas, including a vision for new community development and zoning to support it.
