Royal LePage Wolle Realty,
WATERLOO EAST is largely residential and includes Bechtel Park, Conestoga Mall as well as some light industrial and warehousing areas. The area also includes part of Kitchener including all of Bridgeport.
The COLONIAL ACRES area was originally developed before sewers came to that area. Thus we have large lots and higher priced homes. Today this area has full city services and has 1970s+ development to the left side of the map and new subdivision development on the right side. Prices range from mid to upper in this area of mostly detached homes. Busing for school predominates.
LINCOLN HEIGHTS includes a wide diversity of properties from old downtown homes to some properties developed since 1985. Much of the area was built in the 60s and 70s with a high percentage of mid priced detached homes. One of the mature areas of Waterloo, handy to shopping, schools and the expressway.
LINCOLN VILLAGE/LEXINGTON is made up of two distinct parts. Lincoln Village, with lower to medium priced homes, was built in the 70s. Most of Lexington started with the boom of the 80s and continues with new homes presently being built today. Bridge street is the rough dividing line. There is a broad range of prices and types of homes in this area.
UPTOWN WATERLOO is a deceiving name for this area as fully one half of it is in Kitchener. Ages of homes decline as you move away from King Street [left side boundary] with most being built before 1960. There is some industrial/commercial mixed in this area but generally there are tree lined streets of neat well kept homes.
Years ago the village of BRIDGEPORT was annexed into Kitchener and some of the older residents still resent it!! A number of lots are extremely large by Kitchener standards with most homes built before many development controls. Today there are new homes being built and a large light industrial/warehousing presence. Just seconds from wide open spaces, Bridgeport continues to retain its village flavour.
