Bag Factory Lofts

Revitalization continues in the West Exchange District


Sandhu Development is looking to increase rental capacity in a chic and modern way in the West Exchange District.  The Bag Factory Lofts will continue the trend of diversifying housing types in the Exchange District, proving apartment style living, while enhancing safety and increasing neighbourhood density.  Projects like these add to the optimistic outlook that Winnipeg’s downtown neighbourhoods continue to develop into beautiful, safe and fun places to live.

“The Bag Factory is an adaptive reuse of an existing warehouse structure which was built in the 19th century. Formerly known as the Bemis Bag plant, this building was the first reinforced concrete structure in Winnipeg. The 6 storey concrete and steel warehouse building will lend an industrial feel to the 88 new residences which range in size from 456 sqft to 753 sqft. Some of the amenities will include a common laundry space, amenity room, fitness facility, rooftop lounge with barbecues, and 38 parking stalls, to enhance tenant comfort and convenience. Bag Factory is located in proximity to downtown and the Red River campus which means increased walkability and proximity to bus routes.”
