Exchange Residence at Gage South

The new Exchange Residence at Gage South provides approximately 630 beds for upper year students in suite style configuration (micro units, studios, 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units with kitchen) including some larger studios and 1 bedroom units that will generate higher rents and greater revenue and some small (145 sq ft) micro units to assist in addressing affordability issues for some students. Typical residence amenities also include a lobby, front desk, house lounge, meeting/study rooms, bike storage, fitness/games room, music practice rooms and laundry. The residence includes four towers, ranging in height from 5 – 14 storeys, and will be constructed on a 2-storey (equivalent) podium over top of the bus exchange layover facility.
