Location and Neighbourhood
Zen Towns sits in Cambridge, in an established and developing family-friendly community. Future residents will enjoy quick access to modern city conveniences. They will be close to abundance of lifestyle amenities that include shops, eateries and entertainment options.
The Chaplin Family YMCA which offers lots of recreational activities as well as programs and quality childcare, is located close to this development.
The Dumfries Conservation Area will provide residents with a natural oasis right in their own backyard. It is home to many trails, serene wetlands and lush parklands which they will enjoy hiking and taking in.
The University of Waterloo, Conestoga College and Wilfrid Laurier University — all of which are world-class post-secondary institutions are located in the Waterloo Region. The three are home to 95,000-plus students.
Cambridge, which is also part of the Waterloo Region, has a population of over 149,000 people. The Waterloo Region’s population is expected to rise to almost 923,000 inhabitants by 2051 including more than 470,000 jobs. The region’s growth and increase in population will certainly make Cambridge a more attractive city to live in hence increase the demand for housing.
Cambridge has been witnessing significant development and according to estimates, the region will need more than 70,800 new homes by 2031. However, it will only manage to provide approximately 54,000 meaning there will be a deficit of almost 17,000 homes hence a higher demand for housing.
In addition to Waterloo and Kitchener, Cambridge is also included in Canada’s Tech Triangle. The federal government is making a $53.4 million investment in its innovation network.
This is expected to create 20,000 skilled employment opportunities in Waterloo, Ottawa and Toronto. Already some of the country’s top employers and innovators are located in the Waterloo region.
