I seem to remember that a couple months ago someone on this forum had some insight on the Boyd building redevelopment.

I asked today at a nearby business on the "HUDSON BUILDING" (414 Graham Ave.). The building was recently Sold and is just undergoing some renos.

Nothing more is known. I'd like to know what would be in the newly renovated 414 Graham Ave. though.

There is a rezoning application for 174 Provencher which is the old vacant Shell gas station lot on the south side. It is requesting for the construction of a mixed use building - residential and commercial. Hopefully it will work out because that is another MAJOR eyesore on a significant street in Winnipeg.

Never heard of Kai Properties Inc before though.

It could possibly be the developer out here in Vancouver. They have done quite a few condos(Coal Harbour) Major developer.

The stuff about compression issues (mentioned a couple pages back) on the Harvard lots seems odd. Were they planning on building without piles? Virtually anything beyond smaller 1-2 storey buildings would require piles. So the poorly filled hole from old building just seems odd to me. You'd blow right through that layer of soil to bedrock. Maybe they would require excavations and regrading if they were only planning on doing slab on grade for the 1st floor with nothing underground (like Centrepoint).

Looks like 41 residential units, two commercial units, four stories (50'), and no setback from the sidewalk. Exciting stuff!

^Sounds nice! Lets not forget the height restrictions on Provencher. IIRC the south side had shorter building heights than the north side due to sunlight.

They would likely have hoped for piles and not for caissons

By piles I meant caissons. But that'd make more sense.

At first blush that sounds fantastic but as we know the devil is in the details... hopefully it will be something decent. That site is just a huge yawning gap in what is otherwise a pleasant little urban streetscape so I'm grateful something might happen, but the unknown nature of the developer makes me a little nervous.

As to the height, 4 storeys is a perfectly reasonable, non character altering height... I can't imagine that would be the limit, though? Provencher is so broad that I would think you'd have to get up to 6 before shadows even start to become an issue?!

It might go higher I can't remember. Either way, like you mentioned, it is a welcome development to the strip.

The height limit on the south side of the street is 60' and on the north side it's 80'. A wide street like Provencher is definitely suited to taller development, but it seems "existing character" usually rules the day when it comes to these kind of design restrictions.

I had a chance to pass through the partially unveiled food area beneath 201 Portage. It looks really good now... not quite spectacular, but at least it's visibly of this decade.

For too long the underground parts of the skywalk were like a 1979 time capsule, but now at least 201 Portage and Lombard Place don't look totally outdated anymore.

Well, what do you know. I was there since renos. too today, around 12:30 pm. I wonder if we crossed paths but of course wouldn't recognize each other.

I like the increased lumens, but I don't like the decreased choice in food court companies.

I like the new flooring in the TD Bank part of the concourse. I guess it was time for a refresh (to some). I like the ca. 1991 granite style walls though. And the ceiling WAS leaking since 2001, so it badly needed work anyways.

The place is called Montecello's or something like that. Same chain as at 360 Portage Ave. (Manitoba Hydro Pl.). It was quite busy there this noon hour.

Also that HUGE HDTV screen I could do without. It was showing curling on TSN.

I belive the name is Mercatino Fresh Food Co. and not Montecello's . Different brand name as Marcello's in Lombard Place & Hydro bldg.
