Finaly a sign of spring :D a walk through downtown winnipeg

For those that don't know where winnipeg is here yea go

On the SE corner sits Circle of Life Thunderbird House

The bell hotel closed last summer after the city owned downtown devlopment agency centerventure bought it to redevelop that whole block of run down buildings

looking across main st from the bell

the east side of main st still prity much intact

new glass installed in this origonal store front

new location of main meats witch is across the street ATM and is being moved by centerventure in order to demolish that building along with the rest of the block for the new development

looking back you can see main meats on the other side of main

as you can see they have compltly guted this building (the one main meats is moving into)

where the disreali intersects with main street many buildings were demolished to make way for this even split a neighborhood in half

looking east on the right is the Ukrainian Museum of Canada

As the signs reads also right across from city hall

looking in the front window of centerventures

greys auction what a mess that is the owner refused to fix it cause he wanted to expand his parking lot but the city would not let him so he just let it rot for over 15 years now the city is in there stablizing it and soon its supost to become part of a parkade

I love the many angles that you shot from. Seems like you covered a LOT of ground. I like how it seems like the city planning committee tries to make DT look very vibrant, even if it's covered in melting snow :-\
