Garment Street Condos
LOCATION Kitchener, ON
PROJECT TYPE Mixed-Use, Master Planning
COMPLETION DATE Ongoing
Garment Street Condos is a three-tower residential development in Downtown Kitchener. The development features an internal road named “Garment Street,” as a tribute to the traditions of industry on the site. The concept pulls together the residential development and a heritage building called “Glove Box” (converted to an office by Edge Architects) to create a cohesive urban experience. Interconnected parking structures
allow for a unique shared bicycle and vehicle parking approach. The Garment Street Condos was the first project where the City and ABA worked together collaboratively and in conjunction with the draft Tall Buildings Guidelines. Throughout the process ABA worked closely with the City to evaluate their tower separation impacts and podium design requirements.
