ICON 330 Tower

Waterloo, Ontario. Canada


Year Completed

Project Summary


ICON330 is a student housing tower located near several universities in Waterloo, Ontario. The award-winning design and architectural teams have created a luxurious living experience for students and young professionals. This prestigious high-rise environment boasts sleek furnished suites with upgraded features and finishings, along with unlimited access to first-class amenities.

The developer wanted to ensure the walls of this structure were highly reinforced, yet easy to place. Using Helix Steel, XDG Construction was able to place the walls 16 days faster than they would have using traditional rebar design. Both the contractor and developer were impressed with the quality of the finish and the performance of the concrete.
