Duke Tower Kitchener | 33fl | Proposed
#41
I am very excited about getting future of Downtown and I also like the look of this project.
Do we know if the development is going to be mixed use?

I would like to see the render of this building put on the front page of Waterloo Region Connected.  Looks very good.

The render appears to show ground-floor retail at the very least.

This project should become "The Duke Downtown".... I really like it. Think I might buy into it.

I like it, too, but I didn't like the weird perspective distortion in the full-building render. Smile

Is that an above ground parking garage? If so, I do not like that at all. Why can't they put the parking garage underground?

It's probably the same reason why most developments in Kitchener and Waterloo have above ground parking due to the high water table.

Correct. Although you can engineer solutions, it drives the cost of construction up considerably and it's just not something worthwhile in a mid sized city in this geographical location (the waterfront in Toronto is another story, for example).

...and excessive parking minimums.
