Station Park (née SIXO) | 28 + 20? + 12? + ? fl | Proposed
Interesting. Haven't been by to see the new sign (as the image shows in that article). You can already tell just by the design/color scheme alone, that the whole feel of the project has changed.

$30 million.  Wow.  

I found this interesting:

Quote:Zehr Group is still quite keen on the potential of the site, but ended up selling the property, which includes Zehr Group's offices, because it needed a financial partner in such a large project, said Zac Zehr, the group's manager of development.

"Sixo was, we felt, too big for our company alone," he said. But when Zehr Group put out a request for proposals for a partner on the project, it became clear that potential partners were interested in owning the land, so "a sale would have to happen," Zehr said.
...

Zehr Group is still involved in the Sixo project as a property manager helping to look for tenants.

Interesting that they're still involved

Perhaps a bit of a consolation prize. From what I have heard, at least 1 building (of no less than 4!) will be made-for-rent. Zehr might get kicked back the equivalent of 1 month for every lease signed (usually the going rate) - chump change obviously. But more so involved to keep their name in it/have name published in the plethora of news articles/coverage that will be coming in the next few years and beyond.

This development is supposed to be the IT development folks. Again, from what I've been told - like nothing ever seen before in the K-W region.

The SIXO plan included a rental tower, "west" of the mansion.

What do you mean by "supposed to be the IT development"?

Original plan had an office building too, is that the "IT Development"?

Not information technology haha...although perhaps the office building will hpuse software/IT companies.

I mean 'It' like the cool/happening place to be in Kitchener

Condo buildings also require property management, as would the commercial aspects of the buildings.

Question for group think: (not necessarily Station Park question)
if this should be a separate thread maybe an admin could move this and or create one if this is in the wrong place...

What built or being built condo building in Kitchener?, in Waterloo,? and in Cambridge? would be considered to be the most high end building to buy into?

That's a big question. And I really don't think it would be one of the usual suspects; though, as someone mentioned, Arrow Lofts.
Second part about your Q: "What built" -- can we have a cut-off year? For example, I believe the condo at Lancaster and Victoria was considered fairly high end. I also believe the condo at Westmount and Erb in Waterloo is fairly high end.

It was, but electric heat and low ceilings would take it out of contention in today's context, istm.

Again, if we're including older buildings, potentially Waterpark Place

And possibly some of the units at the end of Blue Springs Dr. seemed higher end.

Was wondering if there was a name address that people would think of when you said mid or high rise condo in Waterloo Region?

My input and thinking as a high rise in the 10 -15 years, would be Bauer Lofts which was built around 2005. Bauer Lofts seems to have kept up their building IMO.

Are there low rise condos that should be mentioned?
