StreetSide Developments Winnipeg’s Oak + Ash Condos See High Demand

Winnipeg, MB – StreetSide Developments Winnipeg’s Oak + Ash bungalow condominium development is officially sold out, with the first possessions having taken place in October this year. The 23-unit development is located along the west edge of the city in The Oaks community.

Oak + Ash stands out as an in-demand product because bungalow condos are currently not widely available in Winnipeg and tend to be very appealing for the city’s aging demographic, according to Kelli Roach, Sales & Marketing Manager, StreetSide Developments Winnipeg.

“Bungalows are always a highly desirable product for homeowners in the city, particularly for the ease of living on one floor for our aging demographic,” she said. “For Oak + Ash, owners

have the benefits of condo living, where they live in a community where exterior maintenance is taken care of by the property management company, combined with the feeling of single-family living without shared walls.”

One consideration StreetSide Developments Winnipeg made when designing the development was choosing the most appropriate style of bungalows (duplex, four-plex, or single-detached, etc.) and finding the right balance for an easy option to transition to condo living from a larger home. With this in mind, StreetSide Developments Winnipeg landed on a single-detached with double garage offering.

Although the builder has customers of all ages and backgrounds, there was significant interest in Oak + Ash from retirees and downsizers, as well as some out-of-towners. This meant that customization played a large part in the offering.

“Oak + Ash offered the chance for homebuyers to customize their finishes and select upgrades pre-construction,” said Kelli. “This was very appealing to the older demographic, who are moving out of their large homes and generally know exactly what they want.”

Some of the available pre-planned upgrade options included upgraded fireplace entertainment walls, full basement developments, and seasonal sunrooms.

Another major appeal of Oak + Ash is its location in a quiet community with a more natural setting, all while being close to many amenities. The community is surrounded by treelined walking paths, ponds, and fields, yet provides convenient access to shops, services, and restaurants.

Having built bungalow-style product in the past – most recently with Amber Grove Condominiums in Winnipeg’s Amber Trails neighbourhood – and with the popularity and success of the Oak + Ash homes, this condo style is something StreetSide Developments Winnipeg plans to offer again in the future.
