Thursday night was the Grand Opening of Cushman & Wakefield Waterloo Region Ltd. and we had a great launch party attending by many of our clients friends, colleagues from Toronto and also some local dignitaries like Waterloo Mayor Brenda Halloran and local MPP Michael Harris.
In addition to introducing Waterloo Region to the Cushman & Wakefield platform of services (more on that soon), we had a very special announcement to make.
We’re absolutely excited to formally advise that the team led by Cushman & Wakefield has succeeded in winning an RFP to deliver a market, development and design strategy for the Region of Waterloo’s planned multimodal hub in the heart of Downtown Kitchener that will be served by a new light rapid transit (LRT) system, GO (commuter rail) Train, VIA Rail (passenger service) and local and regional bus hubs.
This was a team effort headed up by the Cushman & Wakefield Valuation & Advisory Team led by Scott Chandler and Julian Colman, with cooperation from our very own Cushman & Wakefield Waterloo Region Office and our stellar sub-contract Partners: Brook McIlroy, Stantec Consulting, Arup and Urbanation.
As a team we succeeded in besting some very significant competitors, who had substantive prior experience working on the Mulitmodal Hub, but could not match our plan or qualifications.
We wish to thank each of the Team members for their contributions to our success; well done! And we look forward to working with Region of Waterloo and all of its respective stakeholders on this exciting and forward thinking project.
