Background Of course, you can't talk about downtown Winnipeg development without mentioning the Manitoba Hydro Tower ! In December 2003 Manitoba Hydro announced that Portage Avenue would be the site for their new office tower, replacing the current headquarters on Taylor Avenue and satellite offices throughout the city.
Over the 6 years of construction, Winnipeggers have watched the 22 storeys rise and change the skyline of the city.
The first employees began work on Portage in December 2008 and the rest will be added over 2009.
There will be 41,000 sq ft of retail space inside the tower. Main floor tenant RBC opened an 8500 sq ft branch in August 09. Other tenants will include a coffee shop and a Marcello's.
