In April, residents of Manotick were invited to a workshop hosted by Minto to discuss their upcoming phases of their Mahogany development. On July 10th, they submitted the application for the next step in their project. The draft proposal for Phases 2, 3 and 4 is for a total of 926 residential units and will include open space, parks and a school. The unit count for these phases is consistent with the initial overall development unit count of 1400. In my estimation, the construction start for Phase 2 is still likely two years away.
One substantial change over recent demonstrations of this development is that the school will move from Phase 3 into Phase 2. The school is proposed to be located on Bridgeport Avenue and adjacent to one of the new parks. This set of phasing will bring the development up to the forested area to the west. As a reminder, that forested area was recently acquired by the City of Ottawa and will be preserved as is.
