In 2009 Artis REIT, owner of the neighbouring Grain Exchange Building, made application to demolish the ca. 1920 Grain Exchange Annex. In its place they proposed an expanded loading zone for the 'mother' building as well as 275 stall parkade connected by walkway.
Though the city administration recommended against the demolition, Heritage Winnipeg supported it on the grounds that it made the more important Grain Exchange Building more viable. In July 2009 council voted in favour of the demolition.
Construction began in 2010:
