CIRCA 1877 NOW LEASING

HIP Developments' sold out CIRCA 1877 is now leasing!

Move-in dates are starting as early as June 2020, but rental applicants are being accepted now! Circa 1877 features extravagant amenities and beautiful architecture. Fusing historical elements from the former Brick Brewery with modern elements, Circa 1877 will live in the centre of Uptown Waterloo. The building sold out in two days, faster than any other condo development in Kitchener’s history.

A Groundbreaking to Remember!

By the end of the night, Phase 2 sales reached nearly 80% sold and eclipsed $42 Million! It was another statement of the confidence in the Gaslight District and Downtown Galt.
