An Emerging District
“The SHED (Sports, Hospitality and Entertainment District) is home to some of the city’s most prominent entertainment venues and cultural landmarks – MTS Centre, Winnipeg Convention Centre, Burton Cummings Theatre, Millennium Library, Royal Winnipeg Ballet and the newly restored Metropolitan Theatre. The SHED is set to connect these places. It’s evolving quickly, shaping long-term growth as one of the city’s foremost destinations. The centre for entertainment, nightlife and a vibrant place to live and work, The SHED is designed for experiences to reenergize Winnipeg’s core. It’s about rediscovering your downtown. The SHED is coming alive.” (www.shedwinnipeg.com)
Tax Increment Financing (TIF) supports investment in the emerging Sports, Hospitality, and Entertainment District (SHED). TIF will redirect property tax revenues back into SHED to allow for further development.
