Mount Hope is an older north-central Kitchener neighbourhood dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century. It’s an area undergoing massive transformation. The new rail underpass, the LRT and Google’s Canadian headquarters speak volumes about the prospects for this area. Despite the rapid pace of development (mostly along King St.) the area is peaceful and quiet with a great sense of community.

There’s very easy access to the LRT, the Via and the GO train making commuting into Toronto a real possibility.  And if you drive the expressway is only 5 minutes away. You can hit the 401 in 25 minutes from here.

The central location is perfect for a night out in Kitchener or Waterloo, and there is always lots to do. The urban core offers a host of grocery stores whatever your tastes. Public schools are very close but it’s a bit more of a hike if you want the Catholic Board. The majority of the area is single detached homes from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s with a smattering of low rise apartments and triplexes.

King Street has a mix of older commercial property with many new projects underway. The former Ontario Die Company on Moore is gone and will be replaced with 242 units consisting of apartments and stacked townhouses. Work on this is well underway and I expect that foundations will be poured later this year.

There’s no question the core appeals to urban buyers, especially along the LRT route. And Google’s choice to locate here only adds to the allure of the Mount Hope neighbourhood. The future is bright.
