Avenue Building
Some great news was announced regarding the Avenue Building yesterday.

Empty for nearly 20 years, and left at the altar on a couple of occasions, Mark and Rick Hofer have stepped up and begun to renovate the Avenue Building. I had a chance to hear the Hofers speak
back at the 2010 Heritage Winnipeg Preservation Awards ceremony where they picked up an award for their work on The Edge on Princess (a.k.a. 230 Princess Street). They were passionate and pumped about downtown and some of the great heritage buildings we have.
The Avenue Building
The renovations will cost about $7m, $2m of that comes from the province and city. The plans are to have retail on the main floor and 59 apartments on the upper levels. Renovations are underway.

This is great news for the Avenue, both the building and Portage !
