|Seasons Apartments near IKEA/Cabela's|
|The spot beside Cabela's is Seasons Apartments|
What is interesting about Seasons is that it is a large 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartment rental complex that is pet friendly. Unlike many apartments, it also has in suite washer and dryers and dishwashers. Prices are not listed for the apartments yet but given the shortage of newer rental units, it could prove popular.
The big question is: Will people want to be in space of one of Winnipeg's newest and largest shopping districts?
If the increased building around Superstore on Bison Drive is an indication, the answer appears to be yes. It seems most developers have cottoned on to fact that if you want to fill your very large site, putting housing in might be the ticket.
There seems to be few larger developments now that don't have some sort of housing component.
I am still awaiting the day that Polo Park or St. Vital Centre announce they are building additional floors for housing.
The arrange of housing for Seasons appears to be three buildings laid out in a horseshoe. All look to be four floors with outdoor parking.
There is additional retail likely to be added to south of Sterling Lyon near IKEA but it will be interesting to see if so much housing will attract a grocer to supply all the residents.
