About the Event

Brief

There are so many projects under construction at this moment that it is almost impossible to grasp the scale of the change our city is about to undergo. More projects are going up in the core than were built in the last 25 years. The highest of these buildings will be more than twice as tall as any previous structure in the Kitchener core. Towers are looming over our most cherished open spaces including Victoria Park. The vast majority of the buildings are residential. The population of the Kitchener core will virtually double.

This talk introduces a new guide to the changing core and will provide the background to the present surge, laying out the four previous phases in the development of the core since the middle of the last century. The presentation will also ask the very important question: What kind of City are we building?

Presented by Rick Haldenby, Professor, University of Waterloo School of Architecture
