Pandora Avenue West, Winnipeg, MB
- Start date: November 2020
- Expected completion date: October 2024
What we’re proposing
The Pandora Avenue West housing proposal is intended to create a residential community within the existing property. A collection of 55 homes for families is proposed. 5 of the 10 buildings contains 4 two storey units and one accessible one storey unit that can be incorporated to accommodate a family requiring barrier free elements. The remaining 5 building contain 6 two storey units. The proposal includes parking, common landscaped spaces and a shared play area for children. Landscaping is to be used to improve privacy from the adjacent properties, and differently coloured cladding materials identify individual homes.
I am taking this opportunity to let you know that we purchased the undeveloped three acre site adjacent to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness. We wish to re-zone this for residential development and build highly energy efficient, aesthetically pleasing townhomes.
The property is currently zoned M1, which means light manufacturing, warehouse and distribution centers can occupy the site.
Changing zoning and receiving approval for a development plan is a public hearing process in front of the East Kildonan Transcona Community Committee. A hearing date has not been set but we expect it will be early in 2021. The City will provide notice when the hearing is scheduled.
In normal times, we would host an open house at the Best Western Hotel that everyone receiving this package would be invited to where display boards of the planned development are erected and executives from Habitat for Humanity are available to discuss the project and answer questions. Clearly, these are not normal times so we will be hosting two ZOOM meetings to discuss the project with you.
November 24 at 7:00 pm and December 1 at 7:00 pm.
Please contact Michelle Pereira at [email protected] if you wish to be a part of the zoom call and she will send you the invitation via email.
Habitat for Humanity Manitoba has been recognized as the most energy efficient home builder in the province and will bring that expertise to bear on these homes. All of these homes will be sold at market value to families who have completed a rigorous selection process.
We look forward to meeting you virtually at a ZOOM meeting or perhaps through the webpage. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns at [email protected]
