There’s a famous saying that when one door closes, another opens.
In the case of downtown Winnipeg’s current real estate scene, numerous doors are closing in some of the city’s traditionally popular high-rise office towers as brand new ones prepare to open to tenants in True North Square’s 17-storey building on Hargrave Street in June.
WINNIPEG — Both towers of True North Square have hit their peaks, reaching the topping off point at 242 Hargrave and 225 Carlton.
Tower 2 on Carlton now reaches 25 storeys and follows in the footstep of its shorter sibling on Hargrave at 17 storeys, which was topped off last December.
WINNIPEG — A section of northbound Hargrave Street between St. Mary Avenue and Portage Avenue is closing Thursday morning for construction related to the True North Square project.
The closure will be in effect weekdays from 5 a.m to 3 p.m. March 8-29 to allow for construction of the pedestrian walkway over Hargrave Street.
