Living at Kitchener Barracks


Positioned on top of the hill overlooking some of the town's most impressive scenery, Kitchener Barracks has a special place in Chatham's history. This iconic site has a rich military heritage and a distinctive character. Now, over 250 years since the barracks buildings were originally built, this fascinating landmark is being transformed into a vibrant new community.

Ground breaking technology and sleek design have come together to restore some of the site’s original features and create striking new spaces. Every aspect has been carefully considered to make this a beautiful place to come home to. The outdoor areas have been beautifully landscaped so you can make the most of the neighbourhoods’ unique setting, and new cycle paths and walkways have been created to promote sustainable travel which open up opportunities to explore the surrounding area. Kitchener Barracks is a perfect choice for family living.
