102 Apartment Units Coming: UWinnipeg Commons

Construction is now underway at 320 Colony Street on a 14-storey apartment complex that will add more living options in downtown Winnipeg for students, families and individuals. UWinnipeg Commons, a 112,000-square-foot building, will contain 102 apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms. Forty-six apartments will have affordable rents for students with families to attend the University of Winnipeg or other post-secondary institutions. 32 of these units will be offered on a rent geared to income basis. The remaining 56 will be offered to the community at large at market rents, 18 of which will be considered premium units.

Since 2009, UWinnipeg has added 300 quality, affordable rental units in Winnipeg’s downtown and West End neighbourhoods (McFeetors Hall: Great-West Life Student Residence has 25 family townhouses and 176 dorm-style accommodations).

Construction began in February 2015 and is expected to be completed for 2016 fall occupancy. The project will be a Manitoba Hydro Power Smart building. It will also contain an electric car charging station.
