Manitoba Housing Seeking Manager for New Apartment Building

Manitoba Housing is seeking proposals from non-profit housing providers who are interested in managing, operating, and administering a new apartment building located in Winnipeg’s North Point Douglas neighbourhood.

The building, located at 150 Austin Street North, is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed by January 2017.

This new three-storey apartment building will have 19 housing units, the majority of which will be larger units to accommodate the needs of families with dependents.Housing units will be made available to low-moderate income households in accordance with Manitoba Housing’s Social Housing Rental Program and Affordable Housing Rental Program.

Manitoba Housing will remain the registered owner of the property and is seeking proposals from those who are willing to partner and act on Manitoba Housing’s behalf for the long-term operations of the project by way of a Sponsor Management Agreement.

A competitive selection process is being used to ensure that the most appropriate, sound and cost-effective proposal is selected.
