Founded in 2016, Node creates apartments with communal spaces to foster authentic community life.

“Node’s new way of living has proven successful in some of the world’s most progressive cities, and we’re thrilled to make Kitchener-Waterloo, with its burgeoning tech and start-up culture, our first Canadian home,” said Node founder and CEO Anil Khera.“I am a proud Canadian, excited about bringing our global concept back home. We have big things planned for Canada, and hope to pre present in every major Canadian city one day.”

According to Node, the Kitchener location will offer housing for approximately 50 residents across 38 private apartments, with a communal residents’ lounge, co-working spaces and an outdoor patio.

Khera states that Kitchener is an ideal destination for Node’s first Canadian community as it attracts and retains a vibrant pool of talent in engineering, tech, R&D and entrepreneurship.
