In the midst of a housing shortage and plummeting vacancy rates across the Ottawa region, Turkey-based GNCR Homes is offering rental units at Hazeldean Crossings as a family-friendly option in the community of Stittsville.

Located at the corner of Hazeldean Rd. and Victor St., the location is ideal for raising a family in a close-knit community.

Stittsville rentals with an air of sophistication

The most important thing to know about these units is that the amenities and finishes go far beyond “builder basic”.

According to one of the GNCR partners, civil engineer Ibrahim Aslan, building a high-quality product is a critical part of their business plan. “We were able to source quality materials at a fair price due to our long-standing business connections in Turkey.”

The windows for example offer a thick sound barrier to noise, and the kitchen cabinets bring an air of sophistication to the living area, as well as ample storage that reaches the ceiling.

The bulk of these stacked townhouses — meaning each unit has two floors — are 1100 square foot two bedroom units, with 86 in total. The units on top boast two oversized balconies (one off the primary bedroom and the other off the living area) and the bottom units offer outdoor space.

The 10 three-bedroom units are especially geared for family living, with each offering 1600 square feet of space and a spacious two-car garage.

They’re big enough to house your SUV as well as the bicycles you’ll ride along the portion of the Trans-Canada Trail that snakes through Stittsville.

Some of the features that take these airy, light-filled spaces beyond “builder basic” include keyless entry, central air and heat with an independently controlled thermostat, ensuite laundry, two and a half bathrooms including a powder room on the main floor, soaker tub in the main bathroom and a walk-in shower in the ensuite bath and gas hookup for your BBQ.

And these features are surrounded by quality finishes including solid oak handrails, European custom cabinetry with soft-close hinges, quartz countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, and ceramic backsplashes and tile.

Why Stittsville?

Stittsville is the perfect place for families, as well as young couples who are looking to start one.

You’ll find a wealth of shopping options, restaurants, and even child care on Hazeldean Rd. For commuters, there’s easy access to the highway as well as public transportation right on the corner. Stittsville’s main strip is dotted with independent coffee shops, a local playhouse, and is just a five-minute drive away.

Fittingly, Hazeldean Crossings was designed with community in mind. It’s a place where you can get to know your neighbours as you enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning on your balcony And while the townhouse complex is nestled in a suburb of single family homes, its presence doesn’t overpower the neighbourhood.

This is the first Canadian project for GNCR Homes, a company that’s been a fixture in Turkey for the past 50 years. Their presence in Canada is four years young, with other housing development projects already underway in Ottawa, as well as future plans to invest in clean energy.

The second project is located on St. Laurent Blvd. which includes two towers (Everest North and South) with 293 units in total. These units are all residential rental units. It is expected to be completed by summer 2024.
