A Transit Revolution in Winnipeg

Over and over, researchers around the world have found a correlation with a person’s commute time and their overall well-being – those with the shortest commute times tend to have the highest life satisfaction. With that idea in mind, StreetSide Developments have built Winnipeg’s first revolutionary transit oriented development, Metro Condominiums.

The City of Winnipeg and the Province of Manitoba have demonstrated a commitment to include a Rapid Transit System in their plan by 2020. StreetSide’s Metro Condominiums offer Winnipeg’s condo seekers the chance to purchase and invest in what is believed to be one of the most sought after areas, due to its close proximity to this transit hub.

Located in the vibrant and central South Osborne neighbourhood, and just steps from the Fort Rouge Rapid Transit Station, Metro Condominiums is the gateway to many favourable areas of the city. Designed to make city living effortless and accessible, Metro offers an easy commute to everywhere you want to be, with a living space that you might never want to leave.

The condo’s floorplans provide comfortable, urban living while rapid transit offers you the means to go wherever your heart desires. Offering both 1 and 2 bedroom suites ranging from 593 to 1,105 square feet, condos include 4 piece stainless steel appliance package, luxury vinyl plank flooring, balconies and more. The building’s amenities include a fitness room and an activity room with 40’’ flat panel TV and pool table. 

“I am very excited to be a part of this project”, says Shannon Goodwin, real-estate agent from Rancho Realty Services, “The incredible access residents have to every area of the city is unparalleled. I can jump on a bus at Metro and be at the MTS Centre in less than 10 minutes.”

 Metro is considered a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), due to its close proximity to the new Rapid Transit station.  A TOD creates livable mixed-use, denser, walkable places, and provides an alternative to low-density suburban development and automobile-dependent land use patterns. This increases your mobility choices and disposable household income.

Housing and transportation are the first and second largest household expenses, respectively. Living in a TOD like Metro is thought to effectively increase disposable income by reducing driving costs. According to a recent study by the Center for Transit-Oriented Development, residents in transit rich neighbourhoods spend 16% less on transportation than those living in auto dependent neighbourhoods

 By cutting your commute down, and saving money on car payments and fuel, you can spend your valuable time and money elsewhere, like indulging in any of South Osborne’s premier establishments just down the street from home.
