2023 CSC Student Design Challenge – 50 Grand Avenue South
Founded in 2010, HIP Developments has always approached real estate development with a broad vision. We believe that it is our job to build more than real estate. It is our job to help build cities – especially in Waterloo Region.
Cities are the habitat of the human spirit – small-scale enough to feel connected in and big enough to be a force of change the world. For those reasons, cities are growing in importance as society struggles with upheaval. As we lose faith in big, national institutions, the idea of better communities has become the new faith.
City building is a collaborative effort by all sectors of society, and HIP accepts its role in this passionately. Yes, we build condominiums, but we also build public squares that encourage people to engage in play with perfect strangers. We commission art installations that reconnect citizens to our community’s stories. We roll up our sleeves and lead debate about community identity that can unite us all. We develop ways for kids to learn about Waterloo Region’s amazing lineage of creative problem-solving. We call these things our joy experiments because they have the potential bring us together in celebration.
So, when we say we are “Building More Than Real Estate,” we mean we are active builders of the bridges that will turn Waterloo Region into a community worthy of everyone’s faith.
