Increasing their presence in Southwestern Ontario, having previously purchased assets in Kitchener-Waterloo and Windsor, Europro has acquired the 550,000 square foot London City Centre Towers. With a vision to revitalize the core and understanding the potential in the London market, Europro is excited for the new venture. “With new condos being built downtown and a stable market with growth potential, we believe strongly in the future of the downtown core. London is getting attention that it has not seen in years, and we’re seeing a growing desire for people to live, work and play in the downtown area,” mentioned Europro President Josef Jakubovic.
With the demonstrated confidence in the downtown market, it is clear where things are headed in London. Greg Harris, SIOR, CCIM, Senior Sales Associate at CBRE Limited, noted the importance of this transaction. “Europro has a strong track record of success in mid-sized markets and this deal further indicates the strength of the London market and should spark additional investments from non-local investors,” explained Harris.

If you look through the history of the Waterloo Region you’d quickly realize that this place has a gift. For over a century it has attracted farmers, crafts people, industrialists, academics and tech startups to its streets and fields. Following the decline of the manufacturing sector and the automotive nosedive, the Waterloo Region has redefined its image with novel ideas through the old spaces and given new life to the community. With the sense of community, comes a sense of unity. The Creative Capital of Canada movement has taken a grassroots approach to create a network of support systems and to build a platform to celebrate the creativity that flows through this great region.
