Water Tower District passes first hurdle at Riel Community Committee

Shindico Realty Inc. and Olexa Developments are pleased to announce that the Water Tower District received approval at the June 24th Riel Community Committee meeting to increase density from 1,200 to 2,000 multifamily units.

“The need for housing is huge in the City of Winnipeg. The St. Boniface area has largely been left out of new multifamily development and the Water Tower District can create opportunities for residents and the community to stay in their neighborhood” said Sandy Shindleman, President and CEO of Shindico Realty Inc.

“Area residents have been very supportive of the development. We are very excited to have passed the first stage of approvals and provide the community with the best possible project,” said Robert Scaletta, Senior Vice President, Industrial and development manager for Olexa. “Sites are shovel-ready and construction will commence this fall,” added Mr. Scaletta.
