I feel that my previous post about this project would be appropriate here:

"I have found some new information concerning the mysterious towers at Ira Needles and Highland.

According to http://www.horizon-concrete.com/projects/galena-towers, The project will be called 'Galena Towers' and will contain a 15 story apartment building and a 16 story apartment building. From Google maps, it appears that the architect is SRM Architects and that Strik, Baldinelli Moinz and MTE Consultants are in charge of the engineering.

This will be the largest suburban condo tower development in the region. What is amazing is that just 10 years ago, a 16 storey development anywhere in Kitchener would have been rare and fascinating."

As in *new* development? Otherwise there have been quite a few. Though not suburban, the towers on Wilson by Fairway were built maybe 10-15 years ago, and I believe are 18 or 19 floors each.

I think the towers out by the Conestoga College are taller, and were built only a couple years ago. If I recall correctly, they're 17 floors a piece. What does make this development more unique than most is that it literally is on the outskirts of town.

This project is really coming along, and is very noticeable when in the Ira Needles area.

Is this really a condo development, rather than a rental? I would have expected pre-sales for a condo project.

I thought this was a rental building...did I miss something?

It was the quote from kalis0490:

Oi! Gotcha. This is an apartment building, so it will be all rentals...
