Good signage lives!
Big changes coming to this portion of Downtown over the coming years. Construction is set to begin over the next little while on what will be Winnipeg’s tallest building. Although I don’t usually believe these things until the shovels hit the ground, I’m looking forward to something—anything—taking the place of the 40-year eye-sore on the corner of Main and Graham.
Here are a few previously unseen photos from 2012. Lots of changes since then: The skyline has changed, thanks to the addition of a few more towers and the 360 Main re-cladding (ie; the update from late-7os drab to early-80s drab). The Yellow Warehouse has been demolished. Valley Flowers has closed its doors. True North Square is no longer a vacuous parking lot. And the Lincoln Hotel is no more.
Overall, I’d say we’ve come out on top.
