Why rent when you can #LiveLifeElevated?

If you’re renting in Winnipeg you’re probably a bit frustrated. Our city has one of the lowest vacancy rates in Canada, and that can mean a living in a disappointing suite, paying way more than it’s worth. Breaking out of the boring rental market and owing your own apartment can mean an end to life in a disappointing building. We did a bit of digging and found out that the options for folks interested in renting downtown are pretty limited right now. There are a ton of older units that look like they’ve seen better days, and a couple of luxury suites with ridiculous price tags and very few amenities.

SkyCity is the most iconic building to be built in Winnipeg in decades. It’s height (a whopping 45-storeys), sweeping views of the city, and 30,000 square feet of five-star amenities makes it unlike anything our city has ever seen before. The best part though, is that it’s affordable! If you’re a first time homebuyer, the Lombard floorplan (a gorgeous one bedroom) can be yours for as little as $688.00 bi-weekly* with a 20% down payment. That’s less than the luxury rental prices that we saw on line, with access to a heck of a lot more amenities!

Stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a glass backsplash come standard in every unit, adding a modern elegance to your home the minute anyone walks through the door.

Just on the other side of your kitchen, the living area is perfect for an after dinner cocktail or gathering of friends. Standard nine-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows are designed to impress. From inside your unit or outside on your generous balcony, guests will love watching the sunset over downtown. The best part: the northwest exposure brings the gorgeous evening sun, and a stunning view of the iconic Portage and Main intersection.

As with all the units in SkyCity Winnipeg, The Lombard comes with a washer and dryer and individual heating/cooling controls. Don’t forget your exclusive access to over 30,000 square feet of amenities: gym, dog run, movie theatre, games room, private dining area and of course, the tallest point in Winnipeg, our 45th floor SkyLounge. Options such as storage lockers and indoor, climate-controlled parking are available for all purchasers.

There has never been a better time to invest in property downtown and watch your money grow from the comfort of your brand new home!
