A vision of the this project development can be explained as:

The development Site is at the corner of Hickory Street and Hemlock Street. The Site is located within the boundaries of City of Waterloo. The immediate neighbourhood is primarily residential, with proximity to Waterloo Collegiate Institute. The greater neighbourhood includes Wilfred Laurier University and the University of Waterloo.

The size of buildings surrounding the Site also varies from the single storey low-rise dwellings to high-rise residential apartment buildings and mixed-use buildings.

With its central location, the Site is well served with all the commercial services and amenities located in and around the Universities. Within a short walking distance of the site, there are various amenities and services available, such as restaurants, cafes and several athletic facilities such as the Waterloo Tennis Club, KW Granite Club, University Stadium, and Laurier Athletic Complex. From a transportation perspective, the Site is well serviced by both GRT and LRT within a short walking distance to Columbia Street, University Avenue and King Street.
