It's so hard to get excited about anything built on Pembina. It really bugs me how developments are set off at an angle like that.

They are planning on building a modern day version of all the old slab apartment towers that dot suburban Winnipeg. 8 storey's 180 units.

Somewhere up there in that big Merteen's restaurant in the sky, Martin Bergen is looking down and smiling.

This stretch of Pembina runs due north-south. Putting the long wing along the stroad and the short wing on the north side of the lot maximizes sun; the chosen orientation actually angles a bunch of units away from midday sun and casts shadows on others.

Why are they allowed to choose? Shouldn't the city be the one saying they have to go with the layout that creates a street wall (which allows for retail) instead of a parking lot along Pembina?

For me I just get more upset when new developments go up on Pembina between Taylor and Bishop, because I just think wow imagine if RT actually ran where originally planned on Pembina and all the stops in the stretch were actually used by people that that move into the area.

Because the city has no restrictions forcing developers to build right at the street. They're the ones fronting the money for the project and can decide what they want to do within the confines of the current zoning. Personally I don't think it's necessary to create a canyon on Pembina, especially south of Bishop. Putting these types of restrictions might make it less enticing to developers that are pushing Pembina's density up, which is a bigger priority in my opinion. If we start running out of one storey strip malls with oversized lots then maybe we can revisit the zoning and encourage parking at back and street facing buildings, but currently there's plenty of those to go around on Pembina.

The busses that currently run up Pembina do a great job serving those buildings with frequent service and closely spaced stops. A proper RT route along the tracks with stations properly spaced apart (read: far) wouldn't serve many of the current residents and would require feeder routes on Pembina as it is. I see it as a plus that Pembina is densifying in the absence of a RT route at their doorstep, while infill in the Parker lands and Sugar beet lands are strongarmed into denser development as a result of it being TOD.

^^^the slanted look of the roof is gone. I believe the top floor is now curtain wall glass. It looks like there is a roof top patio...not sure if for public use (restaurant) or just for residents. There is also a 4th floor patio which I would imagine is just for residents. Main floor commercial (2 units).

I can't really tell any difference in the height.

I think at one time that lot was the preferred location for a residence for new Canadians. Wasn't there an African-Canadian cultural association of some kind proposing it? i wonder if this is the same project?

The street view shows a sign for some sort of 4 story building:

I can't make out the date on that "Opening" sign, maybe 2013 lol.

Yeah that’s the African cultural centre thing mentioned above. 2013 sounds about right.

This good news for something that is old.

Wish that ugly red apartment was knocked down already. Such an eyesore. Could put something better there. Only half of it is being used.

I tried to snoop online to see if there is any updates on this.

All I found was that Shelter Canada tried to do parking lot upgrades to the whole site in 2018 so they could use it for a nearby office at 400 Ellice - this was denied:

I hope the cultural centre idea isn't dead.

Apparently those "ugly red apartments" are actually two separate buildings. The one that isn't boarded over was converted to condos.

I was inside the boarded up side a few years ago. It was so full of pigeons and pigeon shit it was awful. Also all the plumbing and electrical had been removed if I recall.
