WINNIPEG — The developers of True North Square are marking a construction milestone as the downtown Winnipeg building reaches new heights.
True North Sports + Entertainment says 242 Hargrave Street has “topped off,” meaning the mixed-use retail and office tower has reached its top level.
“This top-off was scheduled more than 18 months ago and PCL delivered — that’s exceptional,” said Jim Ludlow, president of True North Real Estate Development.
Construction will now shift to the completion of the exterior walls and windows. Installation of the high-performance, triple-glazed glass curtain wall will be completed in January 2018.
The first building occupancy is scheduled for Tower 1 by June 29, 2018.
“We expect to be with PCL on July 1, 2018 cracking the next bottle of champagne over the ribbon that will be cut as tenant number one walks into this building,” said Ludlow.
Tower 2, 225 Carlton, comprised of boutique offices and high-end residential units, has reached 18 of 25 storeys and will be completed by spring 2019. Construction of towers 3 and 4, Sutton Place Hotel and Residences at the northwest corner of Carlton Street and St. Mary Avenue, will break ground in spring/summer 2018.
