Located just north of the former Winnipeg Hydro Steam Plant, the land was an industrial site for more than a century and required an extensive cleanup, which included the removal of 42,000 tonnes of contaminated soil, before work could begin.

In 2006 Sky began pre-selling suites ranging from 809 sq. ft to a 1,990 sq. ft. penthouse. Construction began in 2007 and residents began moving in during the summer of 2009.

A unique feature of the building is the curved wall at the intersection of Pacific and Waterfront. Architect Verne Reimer told the Winnipeg Free Press (September 23, 2006) “We wanted to make an urban building, so we wanted the building to approach the property line, to define a hard building edge.”


The developer has announced that
phase II, a smaller structure, will begin construction in summer 2011 and expect to have it completed in late 2012.
