Sandy Hill Development Expected to Ease Student Housing Shortage
Ottawa – Robert Viner and Susan Viner Vered, CEO and COO, respectively, of Viner Assets Inc. (VAI) and Tony DiBiase, principal, CA international, an affiliate of CA Student Living (CASL), VAI’s joint venture partner, are pleased to participate in a public consultation at the Sandy Hill Community Center at 6:30 p.m. on November 6 to present and answer questions on their proposed student housing project on a one-acre site at the corner of Laurier Avenue and Friel Street. The meeting is being arranged by the City of Ottawa’s Planning department and will be facilitated by City Councillor Mathieu Fleury.
This redevelopment will replace the existing six buildings of which almost all the occupants are students. The site has been owned by VAI and related companies for almost 60 years. The project will be co-developed by VAI and CASL independently of the University of Ottawa, and will provide students with more housing options close to the University.
