WINNIPEG| The Exchange District | Market Lands Redevelopment

Location: Winnipeg, MB
Link: http://centreventure.com/market-lands

The Market Lands are situated in the heart of Winnipeg's Exchange District, central to many of Winnipeg's historical, cultural, and emerging community assets. For the last fifty years the site has been home to Winnipeg's Public Safety Building and Civic Parkade. At the time of the founding of the City of Winnipeg in the early 1800's, it was the site of the city's public market and a centre of commerce and trade. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The redevelopment of these lands presents an unparalleled opportunity to create something great, in one of Winnipeg's greatest downtown neighbourhoods. Winnipeggers are being asked to get engaged in the process by providing their input into the redevelopment of the lands. This webpage is a platform for people to be informed, to be consulted, and to get involved.

Conceptual plans in Winnipeg's Exchange District to replace the now vacant public safety building and civic parkade.

Site today:

WINNIPEG — Development renderings for the downtown Market Lands site show a vibrant space to reinvigorate the city’s Exchange District.

CentreVenture Development Corporation unveiled urban design framework on Wednesday, following an extensive public consultation process.

Part of the plan calls for a new public market building, better connections to surrounding areas, such as Old Market Square and Chinatown, and a new pedestrian access way running through the site along Market Avenue. Outdoor public spaces will be surrounded by mixed-use developments with places to live, work, and play.

The corporation was tasked in January 2017 of coming up with a development plan for the former Public Safety Building and Civic Parkade.

“This vision and framework is built soundly on peoples’ ideas and aspirations for this important place,” said CentreVenture CEO Angela Mathieson.

“This collaboration will continue as we move forward and we encourage more people, businesses, and organizations to get involved in this historic opportunity to bring even more light and vibrancy to the Exchange District.”

The urban design framework was released at the launch of a three-day project open house at the Red River College Princess Street campus.

CentreVenue has also issued a request for expression of interest from organizations and businesses interested in occupying space at Market Lands. A design competition is being planned for later this spring to further bring ideas for the southern portion of the site.
