Own the Sky: SkyCityCentre

SkyCity Centre is set to define downtown Winnipeg and change the city’s skyline with the tallest free-standing structure between Toronto and Calgary. The stunning $200 million-plus mixed-use project will rise up some 45-storeys plus a multi-storey pentice and feature more than 350 condo suites from 529 sq.ft. to over 1600 sq. ft.

Developed by Fortress Real Developments on Graham Avenue between Smith Street and Gary Street, the building complex will include office and retail space with indoor parking. Designed by award-winning Kirkor Architects, SkyCity Centre will bring the urban luxury condo lifestyle to downtown. It will truly be a place where people can live, work and play. Over 150 units have already beed pre-sold!

“When we looked at Downtown Winnipeg we saw Toronto years ago with its surface parking lots and empty buildings. We also saw a lot of opportunity in a great city with a lot happening. We wanted to be a part of the change,” says Fortress Real Development President, Jawad Rathore.

The plans call for guest suites, a grand lobby, a dedicated fitness amenity floor complete with a half size basketball court, fitness centre, weights room, yoga studio, as well as club style locker facilities. Other amenities include an expansive rooftop ‘Sky Lounge’ with indoor dining facilities, a games room, large screen theatre and an outdoor terrace on the 45th floor overlooking the City.

Residents will be able to access a wealth of shops, services, entertainment options and restaurants within minutes. Nearby amenities include cityplace and Winnipeg Square, the Millennium Library, the Burton Cummings Theatre for the Performing Arts, the MTS Centre and the RBC Convention Centre, as well as connection to the city’s SkyWalk.

SkyCity will be an important component in the evolution of the downtown and an ideal location for those who want to live in a neighbourhood close to shopping, transit, entertainment and employment, where they can live, work and play.
