moving in: jaimi deleau


As a 21 year-old professional dancer with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, it’s time for Jaimi Deleau to move from her family home in Westwood, into a new urban lifestyle that accommodates her dance and travel schedule, her personal style and her love of the Jets.

“One of the first things that attracted me to Glasshouse was the fact that it is a brand new development in downtown Winnipeg and one of the only ones to offer floor to ceiling glass exterior walls,” says Jaimi. “I went and saw the display suite in Winnipeg Square and was very impressed with the concept of “urban chic”, the high quality finishes and efficient suite layout.  The idea of minimalist living and the way the space is used is very appealing to me.”

Beyond her personal skyloft, Jaimi sees herself taking advantage of all that Glasshouse has to offer. “The fabulous amenities – the rooftop lounge, the gym, and the theater sets it apart from other condo buildings in the downtown area.  To me, these areas expand the square footage of my living space. I can see myself using the rooftop lounge quite often, especially in the summer.  I also look forward to having a great gym that I can easily access whenever I want.”

“In terms of decorating ideas, I prefer a contemporary decor.  The floor to ceiling wall of windows will provide a focal point of natural light and a great view of our downtown.  The interior designer working with Urban Capital on Glasshouse (Grant Algar) had some great ideas on how to highlight this feature.  I am excited to have my first walk through so I can start planning the furniture and accents.”

Of course, the location is also a perfect fit for Jaimi. “Downtown Winnipeg is a happening place!  There is so much new development and re-development planned that the future looks very bright.  I am excited to be a part of this transformation.  I am also looking forward to living downtown to be close to my work and the sports and entertainment district of the city.  Being a true hockey fan, living across from the MTS Centre will make game nights that much more exciting! Go Jets go!”

Right now, Jaimi is looking forward to move in day. “I am very excited to become a part of the Glasshouse community and meet new people in all of the fantastic common areas of the building.”
