Project Description
UWCRC 2.0 is currently developing a mixed-use, mixed-income residential tower at the corner of Colony Street and St. Mary Avenue. The 290 Colony project will be replacing a small commercial building and existing surface parking lot (adjacent to the WAG’s Inuit Art Centre).

– 100% of the units will be visitable
– 4-6 of the units, and associated creator spaces, have been set aside for a visiting artists’ short stay rental program (in collaboration with Artspace Inc.)

The project also includes approximately 3,700ft2 of street level commercial space, fronting Colony Street, St. Mary Avenue and Good Street.
