Manitoba High Rise Mixed-Use Residential Tower

The housing options provided by the building include a mixture of affordable and market rental units, ground floor, podium and rooftop amenities, with two levels of underground parking.

Rather than creating a bulky podium that overshadows the neighboring heritage homes, the four-storey podium provides generous neighbouring setbacks through the thoughtful integration of vehicular and bike parking access. A rooftop amenity is programmed to give residents an outstanding public space to access natural light, air, and views, and to stage various social events. Finally, the greenhouse amenity space and patio at Level 2—along with the potted plant theme running through the landscape design—provide an iconic, street-level image of the building.

An outdoor circulation arcade that provides an accessible pedestrian connection between W11th Ave and Major Matthews Park, while also providing thoughtful ground-level programming that extends the Park’s public space onto the site. A small retail space will be available on the ground level, adjacent to Major Matthews Park.
