Rezoning application for new hotel clears Headingley council

  • Print

RM of Headingley council approved a conditional use application by Canas Development Corp. rezoning land to allow construction of a four-storey hotel at 4811 and 4815 Portage Ave.

Canas spokesman Brian Aslan said the project, that would see an 85- to 90-room hotel built on the property, across the Trans-Canada Highway from John Blumberg Golf Course, is contingent upon the land purchase being finalized by June.

Aslan said the company has been involved in similar development projects in Ontario. This time, they were looking for a suitable site in or near Winnipeg and located close to major highways.

He said, while preliminary plans show an office building to be built next to the hotel, the hotel itself won’t include a restaurant, just a breakfast room for guests.

Now that municipal approval has been granted for the project, Canas will be arranging for a hotel chain to add its name to the hotel.
