Lincoln Heights Area in Waterloo
Greetings, greetings, one and all, and welcome to the WRX Property Group blog. We’re working our way through the neighbourhoods and Neighbourhood/Community Associations of Kitchener-Waterloo (as well as numerous relevant topics pertaining to moving here, and real-estate in general).
Today we’ll be looking at southeastern Waterloo; more specifically, we’ll be discussing the other neighbourhood with Lincoln in its name. Today’s subject is none other than Lincoln Heights (south of Lincoln Village, and though a little smaller, no less special).
Lincoln Heights is in the southeast corner of Waterloo, bordering Kitchener to the south. Its boundaries are made up approximately by University Avenue to the north, the Conestoga Parkway to the east, Erb Street to the south, and Weber Street to the west.
The small area south of Erb Street, and east of Weber, includes some streets connected with the Lincoln Heights area, though zoned for a different public elementary school (Elizabeth Ziegler rather than Lincoln Heights). Prices in the neighbourhood can vary from $250 000+ to over $600 000 for single family homes.
There are condos available, as well, the prices of which tend towards the lower end of that spectrum. Please feel free to reach out to WRX if you’d like to learn more – we’re always happy to help.
We’ve been covering a lot of newly-developed neighbourhoods along the peripheries of Kitchener-Waterloo, but today we’re back to a well-established region.
Indeed, settlement in the area stretches back to the early days of Waterloo’s settlement by German Mennonites in the 1800’s (Erb Street, along the neighbourhood’s southern boundary, bears Abraham Erb’s name – the man often referred to as Waterloo’s founder).
The neighbourhood became established as Lincoln Heights in the mid-twentieth century. Lincoln Height’s age displays itself in a number of positive ways: houses are quite distinct from one another, and they typically have large properties and yards, compared to newer developments that tend to feature similar house-designs and more compact yards.
Furthermore, and again distinct from newer developments, the yards – and the streets that run along them – feature rows of verdant, tall, mature trees that provide oxygen and shade. During the spring and summer, walks along the streets of
Lincoln Heights are quite pleasant indeed – but know you don’t have to hug the trees to appreciate them.
