Sarnia, ON: Development has begun on a new 70-unit rental apartment building at 1250 Afton Drive in Sarnia. The new development, called The Addison, is owned by Vensuris Communities and will be ready for occupancy beginning in November 2022.
“We are incredibly excited to offer new, high-value rental housing in Sarnia-Lambton,” says Rob Dawson, Founder & CEO of Vensuris Communities, a subsidiary of the Vensuris Group of Companies. “With vacancy rates of three to five per cent over the past few years the need is stronger than ever. The Addison will provide more opportunity and choice to the Sarnia-Lambton community.”
Partnering with Windsor-based general contractor Amico and its advanced-manufacturing arm, ALINX Building Technologies, The Addison will be built using prefabricated light-gauge steel construction, a technology quickly revolutionizing the status quo of traditional building methods. This advanced engineering and construction technology allows a majority of the exterior and interior structure to be made in a climate-controlled manufacturing centre and then shipped to site for assembly, leading to a finished product with superior speed-to-market, meaning more people have access to more housing, quicker.
“Our manufacturing process dramatically improves every aspect of the construction cycle, reducing time, risk and material usage for an efficient, economical and strong build every time,” says Dino Fantin, Vice-President, Design Build at Amico. “We’re excited to partner with Vensuris Communities to bring more high-value rental units to Sarnia-Lambton.”
Featuring a mixture of one- and two-bedroom units, each resident in The Addison will have six stainless steel appliances including in-suite laundry, a personal balcony, access to a common room including an outdoor terrace with community BBQ and secure, technology-enabled building access and management. Couple this with a central location on a public transit route, easy access to the Howard Watson Trail, grocery stores, fitness centres, restaurants and more, The Addison brings high-value, convenient living to enhance the rental experience.
The Addison, the multi-residential, mid-rise building, is part of the third and final phase of re-development of the former Zellers Plaza that began in 2016. In addition to the multi-residential building, this phase will include 10,000 square feet of commercial retail space now leasing through the listing agents at JLL. Vensuris Communities is committed to choosing as many local partners and sub-contractors as possible to build The Addison.
