In this week's blog we explore some of the top reasons to invest in DUO at Station Park in Kitchener. Coming soon to the heart of Canada's most up and coming city!

Station Park is the largest residential development to ever be launched in Kitchener - Waterloo. Located directly across the street from Google’s Kitchener campus which is ready to accommodate 5000 employees and adjacent to the future GO Station, this location is poised for growth!

DUO at Station Park offers an opportunity to avoid the emotion of current market interest rates and buy into a market 3 to 4 years from now where we expect there won’t be enough housing. Let’s take a closer look.
