Fire patterns revealed the origin of the fire was in mulch in the back corner of the building.
The company which owns the building, Killam Apartment REIT, has plans to rebuild with an additional storey, said Robert Richardson, executive vice-president with the company, last week.
With the added storey, the apartment building could have an additional 10 units, if the company acquires the necessary permits, he said.
The company anticipates the new building will be completed by summer 2020.
