I do believe the Convention Centre folks understand how important this development will be to the downtown core, so they aren't going to gimp on it unless it is impossible financially, and they are going to go with the best they can.

frankly, good vibes from biff and viking is good enough for me
A picture of these would be nice guys, just saying

As nice as that would be, I think that would result in a loss of jobs.

Besides an assurance from Viking that there is potential is good enough for me.

On Global news this morning the ticker said that construction starts next week. Not sure what that was based on.

This is just a couple of blocks away from my place so I snapped a pic on the way to the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra at The Forks yesterday, which was awesome by the way!

Yes, indeed. Does anyone else find it almost odd that the site is being prepped before a rendering has even been released. Although it is a government tendered project, so it is not like it has to go through city council or anything.

Well, there goes my cheap go-to parking for Jets Games. My friend who works at the convention centre parks there regularly too for work. I guess she'll figure something out.

Heh, GOOD!

Looking forward to seeing the final renderings.
Is this expansion still going to be phased, or if they're just going to 'go for it?'

Really hoping for an all out project, because no offence but we know what happens with phased projects in this city. Maybe Viking or Biff will know the answer to that question, and if not we will find out soon enough.

The expansion is not phased. The architect is LM Architects here in Winnipeg. The builder is Stuart Olson Dominion.

That's good to hear. LM certainly has a wide range of architectural design so I look forward to this. They've done some cool stuff, from just browsing through their site

their head offices are really cool
