2014 Canadian Market Outlook Released
WATERLOO REGION OUTLOOK: In the Kitchener and Waterloo areas, expectations are high that 2014 will be an active and robust year. Urban growth in the Kitchener and Waterloo area has been significant in terms of multi-residential and office developments, which is being largely driven by the tech sector and is expected to continue into 2014. In fact, there is an anticipated 400,000 SF of office space to be delivered in the next two to three years.
"This is not a one-horse town and the reality of the tech sector here is that we have 30,000 employees in 800
companies. In this mature market, I see opportunity ahead. No longer do I foresee anything that could be described as bleak."
- Peter Whatmore Senior Vice President & Executive Director, SW Ontario
