By BERNIE BELLAN In 2020 Shindico broke ground on the first major apartment complex that company has undertaken in Winnipeg: Taylor Claire (named for Sandy and Robert Shindleman’s late mother), at 1120 Taylor Avenue.
With construction slated to be complete by the summer of 2022, leasing has been moving ahead at a steady pace with over 50 units already reserved.
The complex features all concrete buildings and is located within walking distance of major shopping centers, including Walmart, Sobeys, and Grant Park Mall, Taylor Claire has 124 affordable units, most of which are larger, in the $1400-2400 price range, which makes it an ideal destination for Winnipeggers wanting to sell their houses and still wanting to retain a good portion of the sale proceeds for the future.
Now, Shindico has just broken ground on a second complex to be built just a short distance from Taylor Claire, this time called Taylor Lee. (It’s named for the late Rob Lee, owner of Pre-Con Builders, and a longtime friend of Sandy and Robert Shindleman, who worked on many projects with Rob Lee.)
Taylor Lee will also have 124 units, offering the same amenities as Taylor Claire, including: quartz countertops, upgraded appliances, 10’ wide parking stalls, 6’ deep balconies, walk-in closets, in-suite laundry, and full height kitchen pantries.
The buildings feature cinderblock walls between the suites to help mitigate noise as well as heated underground parking, storage lockers, and bike parking.
Both complexes will include: a resident lounge, multi-purpose room with full service kitchen, 24/7 on-site management, and enhanced security system.
