Selection Group launches Canadian expansion, announces three major development projects in National Capital Region

18 July 2019

Selection Group announces three major development projects in the National Captial Region as the company pursues plans for expansion across Canada.  The total investment in the Ottawa-Gatineau region is estimated at $383 Million with completion of the first residential units scheduled for 2020. Each project will offer senior lifestyle and intergenerational living environments, with spaces dedicated to housing and leisure, and will provide environments meant to foster a strong sense of community amongst residents.

A $120 Million development project in Orleans  
The Orleans project will incorporate two residential buildings on Innes Road. The first tower, with 255 units,  scheduled to open in Winter 2020, will cater to both independent and assisted living seniors. The second tower, with close to 100 units, will reflect Selection Group’s vision of creating functional, intergenerational living environments, where different generations can be enriched by living side by side. 

Given the current scarcity of residential rental properties in Orleans, this project will provide residents wishing to continue living in the area with expanded and enhanced rental opportunities.  

A $150 Million development partenership with SmartCentres in Ottawa West 
Selection Group has entered into a partnership agreement with SmartCentres to develop a mixed-use complex at SmartCentres Laurentian Place shopping centre at the corner of Baseline Road and Clyde Avenue. Following the trend of creating living spaces that blend residential and commercial complexes, the project will consist of two buildings, with several housing units, shared common facilities, independent retail shops and three levels of parking. Construction is planned to begin in Spring 2020 with the opening of the complex scheduled for Summer 2021.  

A $113 Million development project in Gatineau  
Similar to the model proposed for Orleans, the project on Plateau Boulevard in Gatineau will incorporate two residential buildings, one catering to both independant and assisted living seniors, with 240 units, and one dedicated to intergenerational living, with 166 units. The first phase of the project, reflecting the seniors’ residence, is scheduled to open in Fall 2020.
