The Construction Source

Over their own 30-plus year history, StreetSide has consistently brought Qualico’s strength and expertise to the multi-family sector. In Winnipeg, especially, they have earned a reputation as one of the city’s leading condominium developers, and they have set themselves apart with a long line of successful projects. Currently, StreetSide is adding to their legacy in Winnipeg with ‘The Rise’ – a modern collection of concrete-constructed apartment-style condominiums set in the centre of the city’s south neighborhood of Bridgwater. At seven storeys high, The Rise is the highest peak in the community. It will ultimately consist of two seven-storey buildings with underground parking, a total of 204 suites, two amenity rooms, two fitness centres, and an outdoor pool and tanning deck. One of the major appeals of the project is the energy efficiency – The Rise exceeds Manitoba Hydro PowerSmart requirements, making it a highperforming building that reduces energy bills and operating costs, extends equipment life, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It also includes WaterSense-certified fixtures, 100 per cent LED lighting, and environmentally-friendly lowVOC paint in all units.
