COF Haven Inc.
Completed in 2008
A Multi-tenant residential housing complex providing affordable housing for the 55+ demographic in an independent living environment. The 165 one and two bedroom suites are arranged in a series of four storey buildings which are interconnected to create a village atmosphere and are oriented to take advantage of the southern exposure and access to the Seine River walkway.
The residential buildings are aligned around a central entrance tower which also incorporates community lounge, library, and fitness room with scenic views of the surrounding landscape. The facility also incorporates a games room, multipurpose room, and kitchen in the central core.
The construction is wood frame with a combination of flat and sloped roofing. The exterior finishes consist of brick veneer, vinyl siding and acrylic stucco in a multi-colored pattern, lending visual interest to the overall design. The building is located on the Seine River tucked away on a long and slender site off of a busy commercial strip in South Winnipeg.
