WINNIPEG - The newest jewel of downtown Winnipeg was officially unveiled in a star-studded ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning.
Premiere Doer and Mayor Katz headlined the dignitaries on hand for the grand opening of Manitoba Hydro’s new $278 million headquarters.
"I only have one word: ‘Wow,’" Katz said.
Doer praised the state-of-the-art energy efficient building as a shining symbol of the future of downtown Winnipeg.
"This is a great addition to the skyline of Winnipeg, isn’t it?"
More than 300 people on three levels of the building’s atrium took in the festivities, which included a performance by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
