The Grand Market District

The Grand Market District

Greetings! Welcome to the WRX Property Group website and blog. This past week, we’ve been looking at some of the busiest commercial areas in the entire Waterloo Region: from the St. Jacobs Market District in the north to the Sunrise Shopping Centre in the west, with many in between.
 
One of the areas we covered (the area around Fairview Park Mall) actually warrants a second look. Over the next few years, we’ll be witnessing the area as it transforms into something exciting and new: the Grand Market District. Let’s take a look!

The Waterloo Central Railway Museum

Waterloo Central Railway Museum

Our latest slew of articles has seen us exploring the lovely little community of St. Jacobs in the Township of Woolwich, visiting everywhere from the one-of-a-kind St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market to a fully-functioning Mennonite farm. Today, however, will be our last stop (at least for now) in St. Jacobs. All aboard, we’re heading to the Waterloo Central Railway Museum (imagine a train whistle bellowing and smoke billowing for full atmospheric immersion)!

Christmas Parades and Winter Events in Guelph and Wellington County

Christmas Parades and Winter Events in Guelph and Wellington County

It’s Noël in Guelph and Wellington, and all is swell! Today, we’ll be taking a quick look at what’s going on in the wintery months of November and December in the City of Guelph, and the communities in Wellington County. Of course, there are always much-beloved activities like toboganning down one of Guelph’s many hills, or taking part in a public skate, but what sorts of ‘organized events’ are there?
 
Oftentimes, we present these sorts of lists – lists looking into the best locations and events in a city or area – in the tried, tested and thoroughly subjective form of a Top 5. However, for a few reasons (including, but not limited to: the similar format of several events taking place in several locations; and the festive instinct to celebrate rather than rate), this will simply unfold thematically. Let’s get unfolding!

Best Breweries in Kitchener-Waterloo – WRX Top 5

Top 5 Breweries in Kitchener-Waterloo

 
Hello, and welcome to the latest WRX Property Group Top 5! This week’s topic is one that means a great deal to many a Kitchener-Waterluvian. Every October, the streets of Kitchener-Waterloo are abuzz with festive folk feasting on fine food and imbibing their fair share of carbonated brews, for every October, Oktoberfest comes to the Region.
 
Indeed, Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest is the largest such celebration outside of Munich (which is where it originated), and over 700,000 visitors (many a beer-lover among them) participate in the Region’s nine-day festivities. While Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest’s official venues are sponsored by Molson Coors Brewing Company, one of the world’s largest brewers, there is also a strong presence of craft breweries here in Kitchener-Waterloo that we will be highlighting today.
 
Because whether it’s the middle of Oktoberfest, or the start of summer, there are some great options here to enjoy craft beers. Let’s get started!
