While on Waterfront Drive, A gentleman by the name of Frankay asked me to take his photo. Shortly before, I had taken a photo looking west down Alexander Avenue, and a couple looking south towards the Fort Garry Hotel.

Some views from Alexander Docks. From the top: The under-appreciated north side of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (scheduled to open September 2014); St. Boniface Water Tower (Tache Avenue); and Cibo Restaurant (aka, the former Harbourmaster Building, Waterfront Drive).

Alexander Docks

Despite the gorgeous conversion of the Harbormaster Building into Cibo Restoration and the addition of the funky Mere Hotel, the Alexander Docks are still a hot mess, especially with this year’s high river levels. But if this stretch of Waterfront Drive is to every truly thrive, the docks and the adjacent waterfront property really need improvement. After all, the river itself is the area’s primary draw. Brent Bellamy discusses the benefits of predictable water levels here.

Edit: Someone on Twitter reminded me of the document Go…to the Waterfront that outlines some bold visions for Winnipeg’s waterfront properties, including concepts for Alexander Docks.

Mere Hotel & Cibo Restaurant

Waterfront Drive. I’m really impressed with the one-two punch of Mere Hotel and Cibo Restaurant (in the long abandoned Harbour Master’s Building). Love it or hate the flashy design, the hotel is certainly eye-catching. Meanwhile, the interior of the restaurant, with its gigantic windows and industrial aesthetic, is absolutely stunning. These establishments are amazing additions to Waterfront Drive and The Exchange District in general.

Waterfront Drive. Days after an ambitious redevelopment plan for Alexander Docks was announced, the entire area was deep, deep under water. Will anything ever come of this plan?

Old Boys Club politics aside, I’m excited to see what comes of the soon-to-be-developed Alexander Docks. It’s about time.

Update (2/9/09): Surprise! The deal has fallen through. Back to the drawing board for Alexander Docks.
