This project must be ready to break soon.... I am looking forward to seeing Winnipeg's new tower.

Lets hope it adds a modern flair to the Broadway area.

I really hope so. Edmonton just announced a kick-ass skyscraper being built, supposedly surpassing their tallest, with more on the way. I expect nothing less for Winnipeg

The project probably doesn't exist. It's probably an early April Fool's Joke. Good one TV - almost had us there

I know I am late with a response, however, if this is actually true, putting the tallest building in the city in that location is pretty stupid. That spot is blocks removed from the centre of downtown. Why not create some density! There are a number of spots at or near Portage and Main or on Portage itself that would be a much better location for a tall tower.
Just a hunch, but I'll presume the Northwest Co. is behind one proposal, however they would need another anchor as well.

There's no way this would be an office tower. It would have to be all or mostly a condo and even then it would seem pretty unlikely that anyone would suddenly decide to build something taller than 55 Nassau in downtown Winnipeg. But who knows.

I think a nice slender condo tower would look nice around there - even if it eeked out the TD for height. Fort Garry Place isn't that much shorter than the cluster of 400'ers at Portage and Main anyway.

Vike, when do you sleep, man? It seems like you're working on every decent sized project in town... or more importantly, when do you drink???

It seems as though there would be a lot of interest in seeing a project move forward on this site. If there are indeed intentions to have the tallest structure constructed at that location, it would probably garner more excitement among Winnipeggers than any other development to date since we have basically been waiting since 1969 to see something taller than the Richardson Building go up in downtown Winnipeg. Technically the CanWest Place tower is taller than the Richardson but basically all 3 of the tallest buildings at Portage & Main are around 400 feet. Hopefully Lee Haber8 is not correct about this being an early April Fool's joke. It would be great news is the development mentioned would actually be going forward. If anyone has any concrete news or confirmation on this, please share so that we have something to look forward to with certainty.

Absolutely! I still remember fondly all the arguments about whether or not the Trizec (forget what they've re-named it to now) was going to be taller. Even years after construction, people still argued - in the days before the Internet, "official" numbers like this were hard to come by. Nowadays, we just come here and have measurements down (up?) to the inch.
