Project Description

U of W Downtown Commons


About the Project 

The University of Winnipeg (U of W) Downtown Commons is a 14-storey, 102 unit residential tower designed to LEED silver standards. It follows the Kyoto Protocol by significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions to virtually zero. The building is raised 30 feet above grade to accommodate a future expansion to the adjacent Plug-In Gallery and to take advantage of the site’s impressive urban views.

With a mixed income mandate, the Downtown Commons provides an opportunity to create a true community with a wide-cross section of people from different cultural, economic and social backgrounds; it is a place built to respect and facilitate the diverse needs of people of all abilities.
