WINNIPEG| The Exchange District | Market Lands Redevelopment

Location: Winnipeg, MB

Overview
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.

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.

International design competition launched for Winnipeg’s Market Lands
The CentreVenture Development Corporation is pleased to announce an open, international design competition for the redevelopment of 0.8 Acres (0.32Ha) of land in downtown Winnipeg. The vision for the ‘Market Lands’ project is to create a new urban destination with a pedestrian oriented internal plaza, zero setback buildings, public, open, and permeable spaces at the ground level, transparent residential connections with balconies or terraces and a granular, intense, informal, urban market – one that enables local vendors to create their own environment, texture and character in a daylight-filled winter-city structure.



The competition is for a design that includes a new 100 unit affordable housing complex, a 700 sm (7500sf) market building and a 1500 sm (16,150sf) plaza. This will be a two-phase competition with Phase 1 an RFQ to select a shortlist of up to five (5) design teams for Phase 2 to prepare a conceptual design. One member of each team is required to be formally registered as a member in good standing in one of the Provincial Architectural Associations in Canada.​

The winning submission will receive CAD$100,000 Competition prize with additional funds available to the completion of the schematic design stage. The winner will have the opportunity to enter into a formal contract with the proponent for the full architectural design. The other four finalists will receive an honorarium of CAD$10,000 each.



The competition will be evaluated by a panel of seven interdisciplinary judges including Bruce Kuwabara (KPMB Architects); Eladia Smoke (Smoke Architecture); Angela Mathieson (CentreVenture); John Kiernan (City of Winnipeg); Alan Tate (University of Manitoba); Zephyra Vun (Winnipeg Design Quarter); Annitta Stenning (CancerCare Manitoba Foundation). Emphasis will be on architectural design excellence and a creative, pragmatic and vibrant urban design solution centred on a quantifiable Energy Use Intensity target.

The Phase 1 RFQ opens on August 1, 201818 and closes on September 14, 2018.
