New Winnipeg skyscraper will be tallest in city
The $165-million tower will be located at the corner of Main Street and Graham Avenue

CBC News · Posted: Apr 07, 2016

Winnipeg's downtown skyline is growing with the addition of a 40-storey skyscraper — the tallest building in the city — near Portage and Main.

The $165-million tower will be located a block away from the iconic corner, at 300 Main St. and Graham Avenue. The upper floors of the building will be residential with the lower portion set aside for retail and office space.

In comparison, the city's two best-known skyscrapers — the Richardson Building and 201 Portage — are both 34 floors tall.

Construction of the new skyscraper will begin in February 2017 with occupancy by 2019.

Brent Bellamy, an architect with Number TEN Architectural Group, said the project shows confidence in Winnipeg and growth in the city.

"I think it will bring investment and sort of a new attitude to Winnipeg. When the Jets came back, there was a new attitude shift. We're seeing this tower being proposed because of that," Bellamy said.

The plan was unveiled Thursday by Artis REIT, a commercial real estate investment trust that owns the nearby Shops of Winnipeg Square (the underground retail concourse) and the 30-storey office tower at 360 Main, among several other properties within a small radius of that area.

Artis REIT will also spend another $26 million to give its 30-storey tower, which was built in 1979, a facelift with a new exterior. A redesign of the front entry of the office building will also take place.

The new tower is the second major downtown development announced this year.

In January, True North Sports and Entertainment announced plans for True North Square, a $400-million mixed-use development near MTS Centre.

A luxury hotel, flagship liquor store, a grocery store, public plaza, and four towers with more than a million square feet of space will be part of ​the project, which is already under construction.

The province and city are teaming up to invest $17.6 million in creating the two-acre plaza, which will include a skating rink, public stage, and green space.

Phase one complete, reclad to 360 Main (TD building on right)

The foundation for the site was build 40 years ago for phase two of a tower development that never materialised. Today the pad site is the roof of an underground mall. The building should rise quick as there is no foundation to dig here:

Marwest Development and Construction sign is up

Excellent news! It looks like Winnipeg is getting a better development than what was initially proposed 40ish years ago.

300 Main St. (@300_main) on Instagram: 32°C today without humidity in the Peg. Nothing slows down the workers from #Marwest Construction.
Winter 2018 began with structural enhancements to the pre-existing foundation and underground parkade. Moving into the spring and early summer months, work shifted towards job-site preparation. In early July, progress began on reaching heights that Winnipeg has never seen before- get ready for some serious vertical!

300 Main St. (@300_main) on Instagram 08/08/18. Beginning of some crane action, moved in the first of the heavy’s today. Had at least 50 workers on site toughing out another scorcher. Just 24 hours later, and already things are shaping up for the next floor. Won’t take long for this project to be the talk of the town!

300_main In case you missed it- Graham between Fort and Main is completely closed off, less a bit of room for the fantastic #WinnipegTransit drivers. And yes, the construction crew is working well into the evening to get the job done!

Ya, the Free Press certainly misreported when they said the crane was going to go on the elevator shaft.


@DowntownPeggy
Hmmm...I notice something a little different added to our skyline...


@brent_bellamy
Crane is up for Winnipeg’s new tallest building! A 42 storey residential tower on top of the underground concourse. Will bring almost 700 permanent residents to the #PortageandMain area.

300 Main St. (@300_main) on Instagram #300Main starting to pop up! Tons of preparation work has been done on the foundation and the Winnipeg Square concourse. Fall might be right around the corner, but the real work is just beginning. #Downtown #Construction #Winnipeg #Main #Summer #Progress #Manitoba #Canada #Skyscraper #AX
