Energizing the downtown core

Day in the District

On September 16, 2017, HIP held a free community event branded Day In The District.

The family friendly event officially introduced the public to The Gaslight District and all its possibilities.

With 3 main stages, vendors, food and craft demonstrations, local artists and a selection of food and beverage trucks, one couldn’t possibly take in all the great acts.

The main stage had plenty of music and energy. Headliners included the distinctive pop sounds of Steven Page (formerly of Barenaked Ladies) and listeners were treated to the mellow musings and infectious rock rifts of Serena Ryder.

The response was overwhelming. The event helped HIP set a new and impressive condominium sales record for Waterloo Region. . All of Galt was alive during the entirety of the day.


STEAM Tournament

2019 Inaugural LAUNCH Tournament

A recap of LAUNCH Waterloo's first STEAM Tournament with workshops designed to engage in the science, technology, engineering, art and math. This tournament explored different concepts like drag, lift, gravity and thrust and how they work to propel and accelerate aircrafts and rockets. As a proud sponsor of LAUNCH Waterloo, HIP Developments believes in supporting creative creative minds for future prosperity of our region.

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 all of us.

Do Something Great

Talk to a stranger. Eat lunch at a community table. Put down your phone and look up. Stop and listen seriously, don't talk for an hour. Observe an inanimate object - What's its story? Celebrate our community and tell someone why it's great to live here. Get involved in doing something for the next generation. Buy a condo... just joking!

Life At The Gaslight

My Point of View

Let’s all remember to find time in our busy lives to give back and invest in those that are coming behind us. Their creative minds are the greatest resource we have for future prosperity as a Region. Celebrate with them!
