The Uptown project, which has an expected completion date of March 2021, is a mixed-use property that is privy to all the conveniences of an urban setting, coupled with Exchange District style and suburban comfort.
The property will feature 23 loft-style apartments, each appropriately named after well-known River Heights streets, to pay homage to the historic suburb. These unit names include The Cambridge, The Kingsway, and The Oxford, to name a few. The property will also house two ground floor retail spaces, covering more than 4,600 square feet of prime Academy Road Biz real estate.
Also featured are four office units, ranging in size from 800 sq. ft. - 875 sq. ft. - ideally sized for small businesses, designers, and individuals who are self-employed. There is a unique opportunity here for people to have their business and their home down the hallway from each other - a true live/work opportunity! There is also a wealth of great amenities: efficient and modern layouts with high-end building materials, dishwashers, walk-in showers, in-suite laundry, a gym, storage lockers, and outdoor parking, including a spot for a co-op car share.
The thriving Academy strip houses more than 30 retail shops, 15 noteworthy eateries, and 55 health and lifestyle services, with continued economic growth and business development expected in the coming years.
There is an abundance of things to do! Residents can enjoy some retail therapy right outside their front door, or six-minutes away at Winnipeg's largest shopping mall; take a ride or rollerblade along Wellington Crescent to indulge their active side, or leave it all behind and catch a flight out of James Armstrong International Airport, which is only an eight-minute drive away!
Life on Academy can be as fast or slow-paced as you like. An active and connected community, coupled with efficient design elements, unbeatable amenities, and the promise of a balanced life-work-play lifestyle make Uptown Lofts an ideal location to experience urban style in a suburban neighbourhood.
