Redevelopment is coming to the foodcourt at 201 Portage, but until then, it will remain a classically depressing Winnipeg interior.

It’s currently among the city’s bleakest, but there are big things planned for this corner.

A noon-hour Downtown photo walk. Highlights include the 360 Main Street re-cladding, which is coming along quite nicely, and the great new signage at the McKim Building (formerly the Crocus Building, and the Ashdown Hardware Store before that).

Working in the vicinity of Shaw Park, I’m often treated to beautiful morning and evening views. I don’t always have my camera with me, but I do always have my phone (iPhone 6 to be exact), and they say the best camera is the one you have with you. As long as you don’t zoom in too close, I tend to agree.

The leveling of the southwest corner of Portage and Main (almost entire block really, from Portage to Graham) in the late 1970s is one of the great tragedies in Winnipeg’s history. It’s hard to blame the city for allowing it though; the promise of not one but two sexy new skyscrapers was hard to resist. What better way of fast-tracking Winnipeg into the 21st century?

When only one of the proposed towers materialized, Main Street was left scarred, and as today’s photos demonstrate,  Main and Graham became a decades-long dead zone.

There is good news though, as it looks like this wrong will soon be righted. A new proposal for the corner looks promising and may finally bring life back to the once great corner.

Some shots under or near the rail bridge that runs parallel to Main Street and around Shaw Park. My office just recently moved into the neighborhood (yes, I have a 9-5 day job), so expect more from shots from the area over the next while.

Boy, after eight years of Winnipeg Love Hate it’s become practically impossible to come up with names for these daily posts. Starting today, I’m going to go with a movie theme. Let’s see how long I can make it last.

From the For Sale sign, it appears this place is no longer in business, which means I may never find out exactly what a pazsteak is.
