Auburn Developments is already a well-known name within the Waterloo Region for our redevelopment projects such as Arrow Lofts in downtown Kitchener and The Barrel Yards in Uptown Waterloo.

Arrow Lofts


The former Arrow Shirt Factory in downtown Kitchener remained vacant for many years. A historical Kitchener landmark, it was successfully reborn into an eight storey, 136 unit modern condominium community with sought after amenities and a two storey parking garage.

Together with the project’s architectural firm Turner Fleischer and the city’s heritage team the historical integrity and character of the building was maintained.  The results are residential spaces that have been designed to reveal its architectural heritage while fully embracing a contemporary style.

The Barrel Yards


The Barrel Yards development project is located in Uptown Waterloo on the former site of the Canada Barrels and Kegs (Canbar), which produced the barrels used to age Seagram Distillery’s famous whiskey. 

The site will contain six large multi-unit residential buildings, the Delta Waterloo hotel, long-term care residence and an office tower complex across from Silver Lake and Waterloo Park.  This large interconnected project includes over 1,300 luxury apartments, live-work units, a park and an underground-parking garage with 2,400 spaces.
