Winnipeg poised for crane activity

February 27, 2017  By Keith Norbury

Construction crane activity in Winnipeg should have the city’s residents feeling “particularly confident in 2017,” a Winnipeg architect wrote recently in an analysis piece in the Winnipeg Free Press.

Brent Bellamy, an architect and director with Number Ten Architectural Group, noted that as many as five highrise towers are expected to be under construction in downtown Winnipeg this year. They potentially include the city’s “new tallest skyscraper.”

That 40-storey building is proposed by Artis Real Estate Investment Trust for the Winnipeg’s Main Street at the head of Graham Avenue, wrote Bellamy, who is also chairman of the board of CentreVenture Development Corporation.

If built, it would surpass the height of 201 Portage, formerly the TD tower, which has been Winnipeg’s tallest building for nearly three decades, Bellamy wrote.
