The Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company, Canada’s largest mutual insurer founded in Manitoba in 1896, is partnering with True North Real Estate Development (TNRED) to build its new North American headquarters at True North Square. Wawanesa will be the sole office tenant in a new state-of-the-art, purpose-built office building, to be located at the southwest corner of Carlton Street and Graham Avenue in downtown Winnipeg immediately next to the Sutton Place Hotel & Residences, adjacent to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet (RWB), and directly across from the plaza at True North Square.

Equipped with an extensive suite of amenities, the building will accommodate the needs of Wawanesa as a most discerning and leading Canadian mutual insurance company. As a forward-thinking workplace environment, it will also include soaring lobby spaces infused with natural light as well as townhall spaces with direct views into True North Square.

This shows TRUE confidence in the City of Winnipeg, the likes of which can only serve the city well in the next 20-30 years. Watch out for this town, it’s on the up and up! .
With a bountiful building stock like this, there’s huge potential here. Why can’t all Canadian cities preserve their heritage this well while also growing for the future?

http://www.truenorthsquare.com/news/...ned-to-engage/
The curved south building will be home to a unique 30,000-square-foot cutting-edge food hall experience, spread over two interconnected floors.

The market will be an important amenity for downtown living and an attraction across the city. It will house a locally focused, chef-driven market, artisanal food vendors, and specialty grocery and retail concepts.

I really like how the buildings are turning out. I can see myself being in the plaza all the time while I wait for the bus. I believe that the current bus stop at Hargrave will be moved back to the square once the second building is complete.

Winnipeg's skyline is really starting to look modern. I've noticed that in addition to the new projects, it looks like they've reclad some of the older towers as well to give them a more modern appearance.

Thanks for the comments, the skyline is slowly modernizing with some newer developments; the reclad of 360 Main, a 30 storey office complex from the 70's from a dated brown beige to glass has definitely helped.

FIRST TENANT MOVES INTO TRUE NORTH SQUARE – TDS TAKES TOP THREE FLOORS
Winnipeg, July 23 2018 – Winnipeg’s leading independent law firm is the first tenant to move into the city’s newest office tower True North Square this week, with a 360-degree view of Winnipeg.

Thompson Dorfman Sweatman (TDS), the official law firm of the Winnipeg Jets, is making the move from its 28-year home at Portage and Main because it believes the new True North Square is the most important downtown development in Winnipeg in a generation, says TDS CEO and Managing Partner, Keith LaBossiere.

“We know that by collaborating with True North and other partners, we are part of a once-in-a-lifetime project for downtown Winnipeg. At TDS we’ve had a long history of investing in our downtown. We can see that Winnipeg has gained a new sense of confidence and energy that extends throughout the downtown, which is no longer defined by one intersection. We know that the next generation of lawyers at our firm wants to continue that legacy by investing in downtown and True North Square”, LaBossiere said today from the 17th floor of True North Square.

“Being a proudly local firm based in Manitoba, allows us to be free to make good decisions that are focused on the community where we live and where our clients live”, LaBossiere added.

TDS lived up to that promise when it hired local technology firms to outfit its new office, and a local architecture firm to do the interior design with furniture that was locally sourced. Manitoba Tyndall stone is featured in the reception area and a new TDS brand, videos and refreshed web site were created by local marketing firms. A large brass gate in the lobby created by local blacksmiths includes a design that spells out TDS in Morse Code.

Suspiciously absent from TDS’s new state-of-the-art law office are the usual walls of law books, replaced by the latest and best technology and highly efficient meeting rooms for collaborative teamwork.

“An office with more meeting space frees our people up to be better leaders and collaborators. We are also very proud that every day our clients and staff will be inspired by made-in-Manitoba art all around them, including Indigenous art and pieces from the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Inuit collection”, LaBossiere added.

As TDS prepared to move from the old offices, it auctioned off older art and donated those proceeds to ArtCity, which teaches art to youth in the West Broadway neighbourhood. Office supplies and dishes that were not moved to True North Square were donated to the Salvation Army.

TDS FACTS

Head office in Winnipeg
The largest geographic reach in Manitoba, including eight other offices in Boissevain, Brandon, Gladstone, MacGregor, Morden, Portage la Prairie, Steinbach and Winkler.
130 years as Winnipeg’s leading independent law firm.
25 areas of legal practice, from litigation, labour and employment law and all forms of advocacy to corporate and commercial law, taxation and estate planning and Indigenous and environmental law.
Almost 100 lawyers and over 120 support staff with services in six languages.
TDS is the exclusive Manitoba law firm (and a founding member) of Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms, with in-depth experience in 100+ countries worldwide.
TDS is the only law firm in Manitoba to offer corporate development services, which are offered through their strategic partner, Acumen.
Each year TDS contributes over $250,000, supporting more than 100 community initiatives.
TDS lawyers contribute hundreds of hours volunteering their expertise pro bono.

TRUE NORTH SQUARE FACTS

True North Square is a cutting-edge mixed-use development that, upon completion, will feature four towers, one million square feet of office, hotel, residential, retail, parking and public plaza space, creating a new dynamic epicentre for Winnipeg’s downtown.
True North Square will house offices for up to 1,500 workers, 288 hotel suites and 324 rental apartments and condominiums.
242 Hargrave, where TDS occupies the top three floors, is the first privately-developed office tower built in downtown Winnipeg since 1990 and is 365,000 square feet.
Over 50 percent of 242 Hargrave is now leased and confirmed tenants include Scotiabank, MNP, and a number of retail tenants that will form part of an exciting, unique food hall concept.
The apartment building at True North Square, 225 Carlton, will be ready for renters in the spring of 2019.
Sutton Place Hotel and Residences is expected to be completed in 2021.
The plaza and surrounding streets have been designed to accommodate a host of exciting public events, including potential Winnipeg Jets Street Parties.

Lawyered up
135-year-old law firm moves into top three floors of True North Square
By: Martin Cash | Posted: 07/23/2018 7:00 PM
Thompson Dorfman Sweatman (TDS) has moved into its new space on the top three floors of True North Square instantly transforming a 135-year-old firm into one of the most modern in town.

Not only does it get bragging rights being the anchor tenant in the first new office building in downtown Winnipeg in 25 years but TDS partners were determined to make the investment reflect their commitment to the community.

Keith LaBossiere, the managing partner and CEO of TDS said, "When we came we knew we wanted to do two things — we wanted to change the way we work, so we made sure we had state-of-the-art facilities and equipment and we wanted to make sure we invest in the community."

The community investment in the new office space starts with paintings and sculptures from Manitoba artists lavished throughout the space. Entering the light-filled reception area people see Carole Freeman’s 137 by 183 centimetre painting, 40 Below, a quintessential Manitoba image of a young child seriously bundled up, with only her happy eyes visible, skating on a frozen lake.

Although the firm spent $14 million on the move, partner Allan Fineblit said there was conscious care taken not to overspend — and not to appear to have overspent.

"We wanted it to be state-of-the art and we wanted it to Manitoba-focused but we also didn’t want clients to walk in here and say ‘Wow. I wonder how much it’s going to cost me as a client in terms of my fees?’ " Fineblit said. "We had a strict budget when we started. We made choices all along the way."

The firm chose to do a re-think in leaving its former Portage and Main digs where it had been for 28 years, to make the transition into the digital era. Among other things, TDS has gone almost completely paper-free. The new space, which is physically slightly smaller than its former location, needs only one wall of space to house its library that formerly occupied two floors of space.

"The space is so beautiful, the last thing we wanted to do was clutter it up with paper," LaBossiere said. "I carry an iPad Pro with all the documents I need. We are outfitting our lawyers with the technology that allows them to access paper as if they were holding the binders in their hands. We got rid of so much paper."

Also gone is the traditional opulent corner office for the senior partners. Instead, all 90 TDS lawyers will have offices that are exactly the same size. But having said that, not all of them will feature windows with dazzling views of the city from the 15th, 16th and 17th floors. However, all members of the firm, including the 30 support staff, will be able to enjoy a new in-house cafe linked by an interior staircase that designers believe will encourage more collaboration.

The Manitoba art in the space includes a functional gate by the artisan blacksmiths at Cloverdale Forge, and another Freeman piece hung in the firm’s boardroom that can be walled off into three separate spaces, called Something About Winnipeg, an oil painting depicting narratives of the city’s history at the forks of the Red and Assiniboine rivers.

Jeff Hirsch, the partner who worked with curators to put the art collection together, is especially proud of a two dimensional bison, made of tin and found objects from Metis artist Candice Lipischak’s property in Otterburne.

"It sort of tells the story of what the firm is trying accomplish by supporting local artists," Hirsch said.

TDS is the first tenant in the 365,000-square-foot building. Scotiabank and the accounting firm, MNP, will start work in the coming weeks to fit out their new offices. Those three tenants will account for about 50 per cent of the leaseable space in the building.
