Welcome, welcome to the WRX Property Group Blog, where we hope to provide you with everything you need to know about real-estate in Kitchener-Waterloo. Can’t decide whether to live in Kitchener or Waterloo? Well, Bridgeport North might be the perfect place for you.
Find out why below – the answer might surprise you!
Bridgeport North follows the contours of the mighty Grand River, which defines its eastern border. The western half of Bridgeport North runs along Woolwich Street, which serves as the primary way to access the neighbourhood from other parts of Kitchener-Waterloo.
Bridgeport North constitutes the northern extreme of the City of Kitchener, but for those hoping to run into and live by a polar bear or two, you’ll have to move a thousand kilometers or so to Hudson Bay (and I don’t mean the one at Fairview Park Mall) or visit a zoo.
But in all seriousness, it’s not very far north at all, coming in at around the same latitude as Conestoga Mall.
Remember how I said that Bridgeport North was a perfect place for people torn between moving to Kitchener or Waterloo? The answer actually isn’t all that surprising: it is situated right along the border between the two cities.
Families living on either side of the dividing line could conceivably organize a street hockey game between Kitchener and Waterloo residents, with nets set up in each respective city. Talk about an intercity rivalry! The opportunities available to residents living in such a unique location include, but are in no way limited to: being in two places at once; confusing Snapchat’s geofilters; and going for a ten-minute jog but bragging to strangers that you regularly run from one city to another and back again.
About Bridgeport North
Bridgeport North is a small neighbourhood, but it’s a beautiful one. Bridgeport North is sheltered from the hustle and bustle of the more densely-populated areas of Kitchener-Waterloo, and none of the city’s major, arterial streets run through its boundaries.
Traffic noise is thus kept to a minimal (it helps that the nearest highway [Conestoga Parkway/Highway 85] is, while still easily accessible by car, separate enough to minimize congestion and sound pollution.)
Most of the residential areas in Bridgeport North are quite new, with many of the houses having been built in the last decade. Look out for sleek, modern, spacious houses with clean lawns, as well as young trees and fancy little streetlights running along many of the streets.
This is a young neighbourhood providing families with the opportunity to grow up with it; ambitious parents can see if their children outgrow the tree in their front yard. The neighbourhood can be expected to grow in the years to come.
