^^ Just love pictures 1 and 4....I have dozens of photos, B/W (harcopies only) from a while back in and around those arches, backlanes around the exchange, with bands etc. I love the gritty photos as well. It's hard to believe how many Winnipeg shot movies/films were made in this area. I can think of at least 10+ I was involved in one way or the other.

I'd love to see Portage lined with 20+ storey buildings creating a true canyon. The Alt and GlassHouse will help. Portage place needs to get its act together and build it's two pad sites. It would be nice, IF DONE PROPERLY to have taller buildings on the north and south sides of Kennedy and Portage as well. Same with one mid-block opposite the Avenue Building where Dominion News is and one in place of the freshly renovated Dollarama.

We could have our own version of the Magnificent Mile without of course the height, quality of retail, and vibe........but otherwise it would be the same.

Beautiful photo truviking. I'm always surprised where certain buildings seem to pop up when the skyline is photographed from different angles. Love the contrast between suburb and skyline, open field and open sky.

I love the one that also has the silos. From farm, to suburb, to urban core. Quite the contrast indeed.
