Conestoga College says its new applied research hub, set to open in west Galt in June, is gathering unexpected momentum.

Cambridge city council didn't want to mess with that.

So, with a 6-2 vote on Tuesday night, council agreed to a college request that the city immediately pay the final $400,000 of a promised city contribution to the applied research hub, which will be part of the Grand Innovations tech incubator in a former Tiger Brand building.

The sped-up payment to the college was difficult for council to reject.

It has been a big year for HIP Developments, the Waterloo Region development company undertaking two major projects in Cambridge.

In the city’s north end, HIP is transforming Hespeler’s sleepy downtown core with its $50 million redevelopment of the former Jacob Hespeler industrial complex. Out of the dust of several demolished stone structures has risen Riverview, a 10-storey rental apartment overlooking the Speed River and the old millpond. To date many of the building’s roughly 150 units have been leased and officials say it is well on its way to full occupancy.

Scott Higgins sees unprecedented purchasing patterns

If you feel that you encounter a project by HIP Developments anywhere you turn in the urban cores of Waterloo Region – you’re right. HIP President Scott Higgins says that a combination of factors, including Light Rail Transit, the changing baby boomer market, and the emergence of young, upwardly-mobile urban professionals – have produced “a perfect storm for new residential developments.”
