7-storey Charlottetown Waterfront Development to Have Hotel Rooms, Apartments and Condos
A development on Charlottetown's waterfront is being built for those who want to buy, rent or just stay for the night.
The new building will sit on the currently empty lot between Founders' Food Hall and Market and the condominium on the water.
The building is expected to be seven storeys, and offer 108 units. Of those, 48 will be micro-unit apartments.
Each micro-unit will be about 300 square feet, equipped with a full kitchen. The micro-units are intended to be long-term, year-round rentals.
The building will also have 48 hotel rooms. They will be suite-style rooms to be rented nightly in the summer with longer-term options the rest of the year.
On the top two floors there will be 12 condos for sale. The ground level will be home to social spaces, the hotel lobby and commercial tenants.
"I think it's a great location for it," said Aaron Stavert, the principal architect at Open Practice Collaborative Architecture, the company designing the building.
