The Merchants Corner Redevelopment Project involved a renovation and an addition to one of Winnipeg’s historical buildings, which was originally built in 1913 and classified as Heritage. The building was converted into a University of Winnipeg educational and office space on the main floor, as well as mixed-use office and residential space on the second and third floors. The project also involved the construction of a new three-story residential building on the existing property, which included 17 rental suites, a community room, an elder room, tenant parking and greenspace on site. This project was pursued as a Community Economic Development (CED) project, which maximized the use of local trades and provided job training for local residents.
