It promises to be a downtown game changer: True North Square.
PCL Construction has fenced off the City Place parking lot on Graham Avenue. Sources tell 680 CJOB construction is set to begin on what’s expected to be a $400 million development. It will include three towers with offices, a condominium, “signature” hotel and street-level retail.
In an interview with 680 CJOB, Premier Greg Selinger says: “It will take downtown renewal to the next level.” Expect the provincial government to commit to leasing office space to support the project.
There are several tenants who have confirmed including a major Winnipeg law firm. None will speak publicly about the project. Expect an announcement as early as next week.
