WINNIPEG| The Exchange District | Market Lands Redevelopment

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

Quote:
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.

It's down to the final five
Special jury to decide among proposals for development of former PSB site
By: Kevin Rollason | Posted: 12/6/2018 3:00 AM

The former headquarters for the Winnipeg Police Service and an adjacent parkade will soon have in its place affordable housing, a market hall and public art.

The 2.4-acre downtown site, now known as Market Lands, will be one step closer from vision to reality, when proposals from five shortlisted architectural and design teams are presented to a special jury at an event Friday evening at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

City of Winnipeg arm’s-length agency CentreVenture Development Corp. will unveil the five shortlisted designs for the site, which include affordable housing and a creative hub that features space for arts organizations, galleries, outdoor public art and a public market to incubate new, creative businesses.

The public will have a chance — albeit a quick one — to put forward thoughts on the proposals, by taking part in an online survey at marketlands.ca that will go live Friday around 5 a.m.

Angela Mathieson, president and chief executive officer of CentreVenture, said Wednesday the jury will make its selection on or before Dec. 14.

"(The proposals) are all based on the principles which came to us during the (earlier) public consultation," Mathieson said. "The visions we’ve adopted conform to the public use."

Of the designs, only one is by a Winnipeg firm (1x1 Architecture Inc.). The firm, which was the architect behind the St. Vital Park Pavilion, has teamed up with dRMM and LDA Design of London, England.

One of the highlighted proposals comes from Dialog — which has studios in several cities, including San Francisco, Vancouver and Toronto — teamed with Jenifer Papararo, a public art consultant who is also the executive director of Winnipeg’s Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art.

Other firms vying for the contract are Montreal-based Daoust Lestage, Toronto-based Dtah, and Montreal-based Saucier and Perrotte, in partnership with Gustafson Guthrie Nichol of Seattle.

Mathieson said except for 1x1, none of the firms have previously developed projects in Winnipeg.

The jury includes Mathieson, John Kiernan (City of Winnipeg director of planning, property and development), Annitta Stenning (president and CEO of the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation) and Alan Tate (head of the department of landscape architecture at the University of Manitoba).

Mathieson said they hope once a design is chosen, they can take it to city council for approval and begin moving towards construction. She said the former Public Safety Building and the long-closed Civic Centre Parkade will be demolished by the end of 2019, and construction could start in 2020.

There has been almost two years of public consultation and planning to get to this stage of the project, she said.

"This is a critical step, picking the design and the team that will bring the project to reality," Mathieson said.

"There has been tremendous interest in the project, and many groups are getting on board to be part of this exciting opportunity to redefine an important part of the Exchange District. We expect the Market Lands to become another go-to destination in Winnipeg."

Design Competition Winner Announced

CentreVenture Development Corporation, today announced the winning design submission to the Market Lands southern parcel design competition. The ‘New Market Square’ by Daoust Lestage was unanimously selected by the Jury. The goal of the competition was to solicit design concepts for new affordable housing, a public market, and plazas on the southern parcel of the Market Lands site, integrated into the surrounding context of the Exchange District.

“The jury was impressed by the high quality of all the five submissions and was so grateful for the effort and thoughtfulness applied,” said architect Dudley Thompson, Professional Advisor to the design competition. “The winning design best responded to the competition program and presented the most successful concept to achieve a wonderful new destination in downtown Winnipeg.”

The jury appreciated the clarity of the proposal and agreed that its stand-alone glass market structure and surrounding plazas presented an inviting space for visitors, with multiple uses. The orientation of the plan, following the historic footprint of the historic market, was a powerful statement and environmentally sensitive, ensuring the public spaces are flooded with sunlight throughout the year and at different times of day. The new market square provides a strong new connection between the Red River College heritage buildings, Old Market Square, and City Hall complex.

Members of the jury included: Bruce Kuwabara , Founding Principal, KPMB Architects Toronto; Eladia Smoke, Principal, Smoke Architecture, Hamilton; Angela Mathieson, President & CEO, CentreVenture, Winnipeg; John Kiernan, Director, Planning, Property and Development, City of Winnipeg, Winnipeg; Alan Tate, Professor and Head of Landscape Architecture, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg; Zephyra Vun, Executive Director, Design Quarter Winnipeg, Winnipeg; Annitta Stenning, CEO, CancerCare Manitoba Foundation, Winnipeg.

"I’d like to thank all of the five short-listed teams for their submissions and congratulate the team of Daoust Lestage, who have created a concept that will add a new jewel in the heart of the Exchange District," said Angela Mathieson CEO of CentreVenture. “I’d also like to thank the Jury for their careful deliberation and guidance in this important project."

The design competition was launched in July 2018. 23 design teams from across Canada submitted proposals during the pre-qualification stage of the competition. In October 2018, five teams were shortlisted to participate in the design competition. On December 7, 2018, all five design proposals were presented in a public forum to the Jury at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Through 2019 CentreVenture will work with the Daoust Lestage team, community partners, and the City of Winnipeg to further refine and detail the design. Construction of the project is expected to commence sometime in 2020.
