How about we just cut the Louise Bridge off and move it south when it gets replaced. All you need is new piers!

I actually think this is a cool idea if it's possible. It's things like this that help an area keep its history and charm. Sort of like the ped bridge near the BDI icecream.

Especially if it had some cool lighting for night time it could be pretty sweet.

Specific to the Whittier Park thing. There's a big rock climbing thing there. In winter it's ice climbing.. There is no ice wall to walk around. And yes you could just walk across the river. But that's not the point. In summer do you swim?

Winnipeg should have a core pathway network that is paved and be lighted the entire length. maybe this is part of it, maybe not. Since we have no idea because there is no plan, maybe that would be a start.

Back on the topic of metal cladding. We'll see what is actually installed and how it turns out..
I think it would be neat to try and drum up enthusiasm for winters by connecting the park and waterfront, make a thing of it.

Fortunately I could be wrong about this as I have about others but am hoping they incorporate some more brick / stone or even wood to frame it because the top portions look like something I can buy to start an auto shop in Headingley.


I'm a bit emotional about this lol. My beautiful beautiful potential development of the Eaton Warehouse must be protected at all costs. I don't want everything around there to be this nice ground floor - pre-fab farm equipment storage everywhere else - style.

I wonder if that black and grey shed would fit on a 50 foot lot at George street?

Great studio space perhaps instead of stand alone housing...

Maybe barrel storage for Nonsuch or Patent 5.

Let me give that some thought.

If we're lucky, maybe we can get something inspired by that beautiful building in your profile picture. Every time I drive down that stretch of Portage, I get a tear in my eye. It truly feels I've been transported to Paris or Bruges for that half second. A transcendental experience.

Wonder if the skyscraper page circa early 1900s was beefing about all the damn sand-toned brick buildings going up in the Exchange?

Seriously as long as no one is trying to convince me that a building style like that has inherent aesthetic value I'll be fine.

lol like i said maybe i'll be wrong about this - i'm open to trusting the experts - but just looks a bit too much like the Mere hotel (which has a lot of colors yes- but has an industrial warehouse influenced metal look to it) and the Pumphouse upper structure area.

Admittedly, upon looking around the area again (not just the glorious Eaton Warehouse side of it) it could still use something more modern around there so its not al bad. There are enough pseudo 'exchange' style condos (with the typical exchange district vibes) to still contrast with it.

Just don't turn turn the Eaton Warehouse into that style

Isn't industrial style a trend nowadays? Pretty prevalent in house and high-rise designs? I can be wrong though.

It's pretty popular and can look nicer than it does in renderings. There's also some really nice ways to do it that don't look as plain as these do. I try to trust the architects that in reality it will look good and that in 20-30 years we'll say "hey these having aged that bad".
