WINNIPEG, MB — Demolition will begin Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at the site of the future Landmark Office Tower at Confusion Corner in Winnipeg.
The demolition, which will begin at 10 a.m. and last four to six weeks, will make way for the new construction project. Local firm Imperial Properties is the property manager and leasing agent for the development.
"We are very excited to see work begin on the Landmark Office Tower this week," said Adrian Schulz, spokesperson for Imperial Properties. "This is a great opportunity for the local community and members of the news media to attend and watch this major project commence. Over the next year, there are going to be some significant changes made to the site that will transform and enhance Confusion Corner overall."
Space at 257 Osborne St. site opened up when the previous commercial tenant, Bruni Auto, moved to a different location. The Imperial Properties team has been working on the development project for the past months, and now that warmer weather is on its way, the company is eager begin the demolition and construction process.
The Landmark Office Tower will be a first-class commercial structure featuring large windows, an open and customizable floor plan, modern mechanical systems and onsite property management. It is located at the highest traffic count intersection of Winnipeg, where traffic counts average more than 91,100 vehicles per day. It is the key connection point to the City Center, Osborne and Corydon Village.
Already leased are the main retail floor—to a national restaurant chain—and one office floor, which a business center operator will occupy. This leaves three floors and 18,120 total square feet available which are ideal for professional or medical office use.
"This will be a state-of-the-art office building, and there is still plenty of space with ground and underground parking available for business tenants to claim," Schulz said. "We do expect this space to lease up quickly, so we encourage all interested parties to inquire soon. The amenities of the new building, combined with its outstanding landmark location, are sure to give tenants some wonderful opportunities for success."
Wednesday's demolition will also provide media members with the opportunity to take "before" photos of the current structure, and then track the effort's progress in the upcoming months.
The Landmark Office Tower project is scheduled for completion by 2014. To learn more about Imperial Properties and its work, visit www.imperialproperties.ca/commercial .
