the42 Condos in Waterloo

Have you see the42 Condos yet?

This mid rise condo development was just completed this year, and has a prominent Uptown Waterloo location at Bridgeport & Peppler.

Momentum Developments is getting a lot of love around Waterloo these days for the release of their new development, RED Condominiums, which debuted last night to a VIP crowd and proceeded to sell out half the building.

The residential condos were completed this summer, and the building was registered as a condo last month.  Once a condo building is registered, owners receive title (ownership) and can sell their units on the MLS if they wish.

the42 Condos Resale Prices

Since registration, two condos have sold at the42, and the prices bode very well for everyone who bought back in 2008 during pre-construction.

A 2 bedroom unit was just sold by a private owner, and it sold for $392 per square foot.

A second unit was sold, and it hit $400 a square foot.

the42 Condos have been a very good investment so far – the average price was under $300 per square foot when these were sold pre-construction.

PS – remember these great pics? They’re from a 2 bedroom + den at the42 owned by WonderfulWaterloo member Sampson

Feel like there is more natural light in this kitchen than most other?  You’re right.

The owner of this residence worked with the builder to customize the floorplan, moving the kitchen adjacent to the terrace and it’s wall of windows.  I think it looks terrific – and it’s unique.

Notice the low VOC bamboo floors, just one of the lower impact “green” options that Momentum Developments offered at the42.

Commercial Real Estate Development in Waterloo

Over at BenjaminBach.com we’re looking at three commercial real estate developments in North Waterloo.

Look Smart By Investing Where The Jobs Are

How do you buy Real Estate? Location, location, location.

Buy Property Near The Jobs!

Are you looking to invest in an area where the employment capacity is increasing? Take a look at residential investment properties near Weber Street North between Northfield and Benjamin Road.

This short stretch of road in North Waterloo adjacent to an investment property we just sold is seeing a lot of intensification through redevelopment. Let’s take a look at what’s in the pipeline:

North Waterloo Development Projects

580 Weber Street North, Former NCR Site

Purchased by GPM Investments in 2008 for ~ $20,000,000

Plans for 350,000 – 500,000 square feet of offices in 8-12 buildings

The former NCR site is huge – 37 acres with an existing building of approx 280,000 square feet as is. To give you an idea of the expansion potential, the site currently houses a couple baseball fields.

GPM (the same firm that is developing Sportsworld Crossing) has plans to add an additional 8 buildings (between 2,670 and 50,000 sq ft) to the site, to compliment the existing building. According to The Record, they’re debating whether to modify or replace the existing office building.

 

600 Weber Street North

Under redevelopment by the Marsland Corporation – 106,000 square feet

The Marsland Family owns some prominent office real estate in Kitchener Waterloo, including the Marsland Centre on Erb in Uptown Waterloo, two buildings RIM leases on Phillip, the Sybase building in the University of Waterloo Research & Technology park, and several Class A high-tech offices on Randall.

They are currently renovating their 100,000+ sq ft property at 600 Weber Street North, and have plans for a new 50,000 square foot building next door at 598 Weber Street North. This site is immediately north of the NCR site

Potential redevelopment site, Weber Street North

15 acres, existing building is 152,000 sq ft

This site, just south of Benjamin Road on Weber, is another potential office redevelopment. The site is currently being marketed by CB RE.

Location, Location, Location

Oh – there is also a proposed Light Rapid Transit (LRT) stop at Northfield and Parkside, one block from Northfield & Weber. And SmartCentres just poured millions into a new retail development anchored by Walmart a minute away in St Jacobs.

Your future tenants enjoy things like that.

When you are investing in a residential rental property in Waterloo, you can buy one of the shiny new condos for $$$ in uptown, or buy a comparative bargain in the Northlake neighbourhood near major tech firms, new retail development and LRT.

Your money, your call. For a list of affordable investment opportunities in the North Waterloo area, send me an email at Benjamin @ BenjaminBach.com or call me at 519-772-4376

Note: Leasing at the NCR site is handled through Colliers; 600 Weber is for lease through DTZ Barnicke.
