A few from Main Street. Of special note here—Vapes on Main, “Manitoba’s first medical marijuana vapor lounge.” Since these photos were taken, the Vapes building has been painted, and it looks like a million bucks. There’s also a new deli beside Vapes—Aleco’s Deli and Catering. It’s great to see private investment taking place on this stretch of Main Street.

Also pictured here: Bobo Chinese Restaurant (a few doors from Vapes), and quite a bit further south, the Occidental/Red Road Lodge (built 1890).

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).

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.

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.

A look at The Manitoba Museum and its Main Street context. I’ve come to really appreciate the exterior of this building over the years. A definite stand-out of Winnipeg’s many mid-century modernist buildings (albeit an admittedly late entry to the category).

I posted a sepia version of this photo a few years ago. Thought I’d take a crack at a colour version.

Some scenes from Main Street. Union Bank Building (built 1904), and a couple of bus stop shots—one in front of The Tallest Poppy and one in front of Thunderbird House (built 2000).
