just like you
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.
Creative... Just Like You
Creativity isn’t exclusive to the Arts. Certainly it’s found there but it’s also found on shop floors, in neighbourhoods, kitchens, boardrooms and schoolyards. It’s in us all, somewhere, even if we don’t always call it creativity. As Waterloo Region, our hard working creative collaboration has, and continues to, generate ideas, talent and outcomes that go far beyond our small place in the World. Check out our video celebrating the creativity that is within us all and unifies our community. When we celebrate that uniqueness we’ll recognize that the Creative Capital of Canada is right here...in all of us.Learn More +
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.
Artist Philip Beesley at Gaslight District
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.

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 MalakoffLearn More +
