Cabana Place

Unknown building (Cabana Place)

After all these years, it never fails to amaze me when I stumble upon new (to me) and interesting (again, to me) places. I must have driven past these streets in Central St. Boniface (between Des Meurons and the Seine River), but I’d never thought to drive down them until now. I’m not saying I found the Taj Mahal or anything, but I love character commercial buildings like these ones, especially when they’re relatively hidden in  neighborhoods that are predominantly residential. Discoveries like this remind me just how huge Winnipeg is.

Ugh, talk about an unwieldy title. Oh well, at least it’s descriptive (if not somewhat inaccurate—some of the photos fall outside the Exchange District). From the top: Diamond Wax & Sanitary Supplies (William Avenue); Colours (William Avenue, across from RRC); Dacapo (Hargrave Street); Behind William Avenue; and Buy Rite (Hargrave and McDermot).

Notre Dame is an interesting street. It’s one of the main arteries in and out of Downtown, and has stretches that are very urban and walkable. Still, it’s never been a street that you’d particularly want to walk down. Too many breaks from the urban fabric—in the form of surface parking lots—kill the momentum. But still, every time I’m on Notre Dame I always see loads of potential.

City Council sees potential to, but through 1980s-colored glasses. Despite the recommendation of city planners, council has approved a decidedly anti-urban proposal by Independent Jewelers that will seriously alter the corner of Notre Dame and Isabel.

And don’t forget about the Manitoba Hydro/Calvary Temple/Luke’s Machinery clusterfuck that deadened another section of the street (Notre Dame and Adelaide). And this one was in the Exchange District no less!

So as always, the city planners get ignored by council and the city reverts to the lowest common denominator. Despite what Jeff Browaty or Russ Wyatt think, this is not progress.

Here are some shots of the the new Altexpo mural in the lobby of the brand new Alt Hotel on Portage Avenue. Consisting of over 2600 of my Winnipeg and Manitoba photos, the 2-sided floor-to-ceiling mural is a collaboration with the Sextans design studio in Montreal (I provided the photos and they did the design work). I think it came out great! Stop in and check it out when the hotel opens.

Some random shots from the North End. First, a couple of shots of Winnipeg Old Country Sausage (Dufferin Avenue); Hadeda Convenience Store (Selkirk Avenue); and an abandoned corner store at McKenzie and St. John’s.
