Building more than real estate.

At HIP, we’re committed to helping shape a vibrant and confident community that dreams big, stays creative and lives passionately. Check out what we’ve been up to.

Life At The Gaslight

Gaslight Square is HIP developments way of capturing the history and culture in Cambridge. The district features everything from fine dining and entertainment – featuring the theatre, festivals, art and music, a unique working environment and a place to call home.

We believe that dreaming is part of living. It shapes creative, confident lives and vibrant communities. That is why HIP Developments has contracted University of Waterloo faculty member Philip Beesley to create a permanent art installation, coming in the spring of 2019 at Gaslight Square in Cambridge.

Full STEAM Ahead

Launch Day

The Future will be built by our children. That’s why we’re building a facility to engage kids in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), at our Strata development. It's called LAUNCH and recently we held LAUNCH DAY, an event where kids hung out and worked with local STEAM professionals. The future is looking brighter.

Gaslight Square Comes to life with help from our friends.

We have always loved the interactive art found on the streets of Montreal - especially the illuminated musical swings. It is known around the world and bring smiles to everyone’s faces. We’ve decided to bring that level of world class excitement to Gaslight Square. HIP is working with Daily Tous Les Jours, the Montreal based interaction design studio responsible for the swings and so much more. Daily will be creating a permanent outdoor experience at Gaslight Square designed to help us connect with, and be part of, the stories in our Grand River. We can’t imagine, and can’t wait, to see what they’ll do. To hold you over, have a look at “Hello Trees” created for Houston Texas. Photography by Morris Malakoff
