Corb Stewart Apartments: New rental complex in Arnprior
Located northwest of Ottawa in the quaint town of Arnprior, the Corb Stewart residential development includes two five-storey apartment buildings and a series of three-storey townhomes, the latter of which will be constructed in the second phase of the project.
The two phase-one buildings are located on Corb Stewart Drive and back onto Baskin Drive. They offer 29 one- and two-bedroom units each, providing a much-needed boost to the availability of rental options in the town. Arnprior is among the fastest-growing in Canada. The building design complies with CMHC standards, which aim to increase energy efficiency and performance by 15%. Additionally, they provide affordable housing.
The choice of wood framing for the buildings was not only economical but also environmentally sound. Moreover, it has become the dominant material for mid-rise buildings due to its strength, durability, and renewability. The buildings feature a base made of natural clay brick and stone, which transitions to lightweight wood-grained metal siding on the upper levels. The use of brick, stone, panel siding, and horizontal metal siding contributes to a contemporary feel of the exterior facade.
The Corb Stewart residential development is complete with full building automation, on-site laundry, and ample parking. It also offers all the necessities for living in the growing community.
