The Manitoba government is funding a project in Osborne Village that will combine co-operative housing, commercial space and an arts centre.
Plans call for the existing Gas Station Arts Centre on River Avenue to be torn down, making way for a new mixed-use facility featuring commercial space, a new theatre and 82 housing units.
Thirty-one of those units will be set aside for low- to moderate-income households. The remaining 51 units would have market-rate housing charges.
The housing co-operative will be open to individuals with a focus on seniors and young adults with low incomes and with a connection to Winnipeg’s performing arts and theatre creative communities.
