Winnipeg’s skyline will be drastically altered when a new skyscraper comes to fruition.
Developers officially unveiled their plans Friday for a mixed-use tower at the corner of Graham Avenue and Garry Street, dubbed the LiveWorkPlay project.
Toronto-based developers MADY Development Corp. and Fortress Real Developments say the tower will be the tallest between Calgary and Toronto — boasting 55 storeys.
The 730,000-square-foot, $200 million building will include 400 housing units and commercial space, with a grocery store on the main level.
Jawad Rathore, president and CEO of Fortress Real Developments, says a pre-sale on the units will begin next spring. Units will range in price from $200,000 to over $2 million.
The name of the building hasn’t been decided, but the public can submit their own ideas for the chance to win $3,000 at LiveWorkPlayWinnipeg.com.
Construction is expected to start in spring 2015, with a completion date of 2017.
