Steven Page brought out some of his biggest hits, as the former Barenaked Ladies lead singer rocked the Riverbank Lofts condominium sales launch event this past Saturday night. Cory de Villiers and the Century 21 Village on the River Team partnered with developer HIP Developments and saw over 80% of the condo units reserved in what was one of the most memorable and electric nights seen in Hespeler.

The 1800’s former woolen mill and American Standard factory at 19 Guelph Avenue in Hespeler played its part as a trendy night club as over 350 prospective condo buyers, guests and local dignitaries packed the old stone and timber building. Registered buyers were called in groups throughout the evening into a “VIP Signing Room” with private meeting areas manned by Hespeler real estate agent Cory de Villiers and his team from Century 21. Sales went quickly as half of the 42 units were reserved within the first hour.

“We are ecstatic about how the night went,” says HIP Developments President Scott Higgins. “Seeing people walk out of the signing room, smiling ear to ear, having just purchased a piece of history, and their future home, was something lasting that I will take away.” Over the course of the evening, attendees described the event as “amazing”, “incredible”, and “…something Cambridge has never seen before”. Some joked that the former mill could stand in as a concert venue on a permanent basis.

The former mill and one-time night club will be transformed into 42 high end condominium lofts over the next year, as buyers work with the HIP team on customizing finishes as the conversion takes place.

The landmark riverside building set in the heart of Hespeler Village has just a few units remaining in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have a premium condominium on the water in a historic building.

Local real estate agent, Cory de Villiers handled the sales side of the event and will work with buyers that couldn’t attend the launch to snap up the few remaining units at Riverbank Lofts. Cory best summed up the event when he said "It was a successful night, and it was a unique opportunity to meet our future neighbours. Thirty-four enthusiastic buyers excited about the project and the prospect of calling the Riverbank Lofts and Hespeler Village home."

A past hub of activity, it was great to see the former mill come alive again with one of most memorable Hespeler nights in recent times.
