Seven Treaty 1 First Nations will be taking over the Kapyong Barracks land with plans to develop the largest urban reserve in Canada. Around two-thirds of the abandoned military base is being developed by the Treaty 1 Development Corporation, and the rest of the property will be developed by Canada Lands Co., a Crown corporation. Plans may include a sports facility, hotel, convention centre, war museum and an Indigenous hospice, green space as well as low, medium and high density residential areas.

A look at the phase 1 restoration of the 1906 James Avenue Pumping Station in The Exchange District. It had received heritage designation on November 15th, 1982 and operated until 1986 when the City of Winnipeg closed the station. It has sat abandoned and unused ever since. Today it's the HQ for ThinkShift, a marketing firm, there will soon be a restaurant/retail space open on the main level along Waterfront Drive. Phase two & three will see residential buildings developed on the east and west sides of the pump house.

James Ave Pumping Station Redevelopment
Location: 109 James Avenue, Winnipeg, MB
Developers: ALSTON PROPERTIES LTD.
Architect(s) : 5468796 Architecture Inc
Status: Phase 1 Completed
Project Thread: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=223833
Phase 1: 18,600 SF of office/retail space in the James Ave Pumping Station Building. 100% leased. Spring 2018 occupancy.





Quote:
The pump house was built in 1906 for fire suppression, prompted by a great conflagration two years earlier. The 1904 fire razed several downtown Winnipeg buildings including the Bullman block, the Rialto block and Great Northern Telegraph, and the J. H. Ashdown Hardware Company at Bannatyne Avenue and Main Street. The Woodbine Hotel and the Dufferin block were badly damaged. There was no means to fight fires that were six stories in height.
So hardware mogul James Ashdown campaigned for construction of the pump house to provide pressurized water to fight future fires. His efforts carried him all the way into the mayor’s chair.

The pump house was state-of-the-art engineering and an example of what the fledgeling city could accomplish when it pulled together. The building has a classy look, made of sandstone brick with many large windows. The glasswork lets in natural light and offers views of the Red River but also lets people see inside. It was a statement to the community that the coal-fired pumps made Winnipeg safer.

from its location along Waterfront Driver and James Ave., it drew water from the Red River and pumped it vertically to the upper reaches of downtown buildings and horizontally all the way to McPhillips Street. The pipe that drew water from the river is still in place but is now capped.

Through an underground network of pipes, the pumping station connected to 110 fire hydrants in the city. Firefighters could go to nearest hydrant and tap it for pressurized water.

Slated for demolition after 17 attempts to revive the historic structure over the last 14 years, the James Avenue Pumping Station was successfully preserved through the development of a financial / building pro forma that would make it financially feasible. While the existing building’s foundation was not capable of supporting the construction of additional floors on top of the Pumphouse, a gantry crane capacity allowed for a new floor within the existing building. Incorporated as tenancy, this left the pumps on the main floor free and clear of complicated programming as proposed in previous revitalization attempts, and instead distinguished its adaptive reuse as one that celebrates the existing while creating a viable future life.

The development resulted in 10,500 sqft of elevated main floor commercial space and 3,000 sqft of ground level commercial space facing Waterfront Drive. On either side of the historic pumphouse three new 6 storey residential buildings will be constructed. They will be located 20 ft away from the existing building creating new ’streets’ that respect the original pumphouse and expand the ground floor store frontages. This multi-faceted, mixed-use development is the first proposal on the site that has gained the support of the community at large, the neighbouring condominium complexes and the historic buildings committee at the City of Winnipeg.

In keeping with the utilitarian nature of the original design, the new builds book-end the existing structure and subtly support its aesthetic through deliberately simple, modular forms. With views directed to the historical centre of the site, its storied past is highlighted and the human scale of a new perspectives can be seen in the approach to the site, the neighbouring exterior walkways, and the intimate alleyways formed between the old and new facades.

Railside at The Forks, a 12-acre plot of surface parking lots, will be developed as a medium density, mid-rise (4 to 6 storey) residential village with interesting public spaces, high quality urban design and closely spaced storefronts at ground level; a place where pedestrians are prioritized.

















Slip from https://atlrg.ca/

2 600SF four storey mixed-use building with a maximum of 5 ground level micro commercial units totalling 2 000SF and three storeys containing 18 micro-residential rental units totalling 6 560SF. Additional programming includes ground level public washroom, exterior tenant planter box space, roof-top deck, and urban bee farm.

Design Development Stage
Client: Vishin Developments
Budget: ±$3 000 000
Winnipeg MB 2018
https://www.atlrg.ca/







Sputnik, Westland Construction, and Green Seed Developments’ submission to the Railside at the Forks Request For Proposals. The building is conceived as a box containing a beautiful array of human beings, each with their own personality and character. Covering this box of humanity is a quilt of life. Each individual unit bursts through the veil of plants with individually coloured balcony railings. This box bursting with life floats above a plinth of commerce. The overhang at the second floor will provide shelter to anyone walking along the storefront on the building.
The images demonstrate the capacity of the buildings metamorphosis through the wonderful seasons experienced in Winnipeg. The tapestry of colour will change through the seasons. The alleyways are intimate and engaging. Imagine the potential of small ground floor food kiosks in spaces with warmed sidewalks heated by rooftop evacuated solar tubes.
The layout of each level allows for a potential range of unit sizes which vary from 300 square feet to 1200 square feet, and 4 to 6 units per level. The upper floors are proposed as live work condominiums. These units will encourage occupancy of the building throughout the day. Whereas a building of strictly residential occupancy may empty each morning and fill up each evening minimizing the foot traffic on the ground level during the day. If the six units on levels 5 & 6 were occupied by those uses allowed by City of Winnipeg zoning for live work occupancy, there may be reason to hope that a barista on the main floor might survive the gap between morning and evening.

A diminutive footprint and a desire for more space leads to a massive overhang, creates a public plaza and sculptural urban landscape. 6 storeys includes 2 commercial units, 14 residential units, and vertical parking carousel structure, comprising 20 000 SF.

Quote:
August 14, 2019 - Winnipeg, MB - Press release

An ambitious project now underway at the Norwood Hotel will soon bring elevated cuisine and fresh new style to one of Winnipeg’s most beloved gathering places.

Today Sparrow Hotels unveiled the new concepts behind the transformation of the 82-year-old establishment in the heart of the city’s French quarter. Patrons will get their first peek at the new facilities when doors open in late September. “It’s a challenge to reinvent a place that is basically a local institution,” said Ben Sparrow, CEO of Sparrow Hotels. “Our goal was to give this city more of the award-winning design that has been so successful at our latest restaurants. At the same time, we wanted to retain the warm, welcoming character that makes the Norwood special. Our new concepts capture all of these elements, and we can’t wait to share them with Winnipeg.” Inspiration was drawn from the history of the hotel, the surrounding community of St. Boniface and the latest hospitality trends. The resulting design uses classic, retro-inspired materials in a modern way, creating an atmosphere that feels warm, nostalgic and decidedly contemporary.

Three new concepts within this overall design approach, the Norwood's new restaurant, tavern and gaming lounge will assert their own distinctive personalities.

PAULINE
Pauline will be a stylish new restaurant with an old French bistro feel, serving simple, elegant fare for breakfast and brunch. The light, airy space will be dressed in the classic French colours of royal blue, white and cream, punctuated with bright pops of golden yellow, natural wood tones and coloured mosaic tile. The name was inspired by Pauline Boutal, a well-known St. Boniface artist who created fashion illustrations for Eaton’s from the 1920s onward. Her work will be echoed in murals and accents throughout the restaurant. “It’s our way of celebrating the surrounding community of St. Boniface, which is the heart of Manitoba’s French history and culture,” Sparrow said.

THE WOOD TAVERN
The Wood Tavern, the neighborhood’s favorite hangout, has been reimagined from top to bottom for a new generation of bar patrons. The new design gives a nod to the building’s 82-year history as a tavern while embracing the growing popularity of camping-inspired cuisine. The ambience will be cozy and outdoorsy, with plenty of dark woods, raw stone, warm leather and bright hits of brass. The tavern will also feature several private dining spaces for groups of up to 200.

CAROUSEL GAMING LOUNGE
Carousel, the new gaming lounge, will be a fresh take on the VLT area. The lounge will be directly accessible from the street, and will have its own bar and comfortable seating. Dark woods, raw brick, deep blacks and rich golds will bring to mind the heyday of casinos and a ‘secret club’ vibe.
Sparrow Hotels recruited the best firms in the business to create and implement the new concepts. The designs were created by FRANK, a Calgary firm that is a North American leader in the hospitality sector, and are being implemented by Winnipeg’s PCL Construction. “The success of our latest restaurants, Smith and ERA, has shown us that good design is good business,” Sparrow said. “Winnipeg is becoming known for its forward designs, and we thought why not bring that same quality to St. Boniface? It’s the right thing to do in such a unique neighbourhood, so close to downtown.”

DINING WITH A WOOD-FIRED TWIST
The new concepts will showcase a dining style centered around the irresistible tastes and aromas of open fire cooking. The star of the show will be a new open kitchen anchored by an 88 inch live-fired grill, one of the largest of its kind in Canada. Visible from both the tavern and Pauline bistro, it will provide a feast for the eyes as it adds special sizzle to the wood-fired burgers, house-smoked wings and ribs and full dinner menu available in The Wood.

TRANSFORMING THE STREETSCAPE OF A THRIVING CORNER
The exterior of the 100-year-old building is also getting a new look. Behind the scaffolding now in place, workers are removing awnings, refacing brick, punching through walls and installing additional windows. When their work is completed, the streetscape of Marion will be transformed. Instead of a long expanse of red brick, passersby will see individual venues with different personas. Airy white brick will distinguish Pauline restaurant, while The Wood will have a dramatic black exterior. Patrons will be able to enter Carousel directly from the street via a separate entrance, and a deep blue colour scheme will mark the shared entrance to The Wood and Pauline.

The renewal is part of a bigger revitalization of the Marion-Taché corner, including new developments by the Black Bird eatery and Enterprises Riel. “The Norwood BIZ is aiming to make Marion Street the next Corydon Avenue, and we’re proud to play a leading role,” Sparrow said. “Downtown developments may get most of the attention these days, but some of the most exciting projects are happening just over the bridge in St. Boniface.”

Osborne to Downtown Walk Bike Bridge
Location: Assiniboine River crossing, McFadyen Park and Fort Rouge Park, Winnipeg, MB
Developer: City of Winnipeg
Architects: TBD
Contractor: TBD
Size: TBD
Cost: TBD
Status: design Stage
Media: 3 designs pitched for new pedestrian bridge over Assiniboine River
Description: A preliminary design for a new pedestrian and cycling bridge over the Assiniboine River will be developed to connect Osborne Village to Downtown via McFadyen Park on the north side of the river and Fort Rouge Park on the south side of the river. Considerations for this project include pedestrian and cycling connectivity throughout Osborne Village to Osborne Rapid Transit Station, Norwood Bridge, bike lanes on Nassau Street, and the riverwalk, upgrades to both McFadyen Park and Fort Rouge Park, crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED), and riverbank stabilization.

Bridge Option 2 of 3: Cable-Stayed Bridge:
Landmark double curved bridge:
  • Could attract visitors (as there are very few curvilinear cable-stayed bridges in North America, and this would be the first Canada).
  • Aesthetically unique as it allows someone on the bridge to see the other side of the bridge while crossing it.
  • The double curved feature may help to provide a better "connection to the parks" feeling.
  • The double curved feature will naturally help to slow down pedestrians and cyclists on the bridge (when compared to a straight bridge).
  • The double curved bridge mimics the meandering rivers and streets along rivers in Winnipeg.

The Forks National Heritage Site Visitor Centre
Location: 45 Forks Market Road, The Forks National Historic Site, Winnipeg, MB
Developer: The Forks North Portage Partnership
Architect(s): 1x1 architecture inc.
Size: 7,653 sq.ft.
Status: Proposed
Description: Due to the requirement by Parks Canada to not increase the built form on the protected site, the proposed Visitor Centre is located at the site of the existing orientation node, and will renovate the existing washroom / office building which consists of a circular structure constructed of tyndall stone plinths carrying a wood trellis. A major east-west axis cuts through the National Historic Site. From the west, this axis starts at the dome of Union Station, situated at the end of the Broadway promenade, continues through the centre of the orientation node and culminates at the Saint Boniface Cathedral-Basilica Parish on the east side of the Red River. This axis symbolically connects St. Boniface to Winnipeg’s downtown. The design intent was not only to maintain this axis, but to enhance it, thus the Visitor Centre was split into two buildings.

Quote:
The Forks National Historic Site of Canada is a 9-acre park situated at the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers in Winnipeg, Manitoba and is dedicated to preserving and presenting the 6,000-year history of human presence and activity on the site. The site, located along the Red River, is adjacent to the Forks Market and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Quote:
The primary cladding material in the design is wood that is treated with a process that polymerizes the wood to resist water and insects, and will develop a natural silver finish as it weathers. The second cladding material is local Manitoba Tyndall stone that is already featured prominently throughout the site. All other materials have been selected to be durable and low maintenance.
