Waterfront community pivots to rentals to meet market demands
July 10, 2023 – Zibi is holding a leasing event on Saturday, July 15 for its newest rental offering: Aalto II.
Following on the success of Aalto, Zibi’s first rental building, Aalto II is the waterfront community’s second rental offering, and its fourth residential property. Located on the Gatineau shores of the Ottawa River and overlooking the national capital’s most striking landmarks, the 11 storey Aalto II offers 148 light-filled suites, many of which featuring private terraces or balconies.
Aalto II was designed as a purpose-built rental with condo-like finishes and amenities to respond to local market conditions, providing residents with a sense of high-end condo lifestyle without the cost of buying.
“We know the national capital region, like all of Canada, is suffering from a severe housing shortage, especially in the rental market,” said Justin Robitaille, Vice President of Development at Dream. “Aalto II is a response to that, and we look forward to unveiling some more innovative housing options at Zibi later this fall.”
The award-winning Zibi is Canada’s first One Planet Living® community. It features high transit, walkability and bike scores, is located within steps of downtown Gatineau and Ottawa, and offers a unique interprovincial district energy system, which heats and cools all buildings while producing zero carbon emissions. With its many waterfront parks, and fun event spaces, Zibi can easily boast the title of the national capital region’s most liveable community.
A chance to be the first to choose an Aalto II suite!
The leasing event, which is taking place, Saturday, July 15 from 9am to 5pm at Zibi House, will be an opportunity for the public to be the first to lease the suite of their choice, to learn more about the Aalto II lifestyle, and to step into the impressive Zibi waterfront community. Light refreshments will be served, and free parking is available.
