Winnipeg | St. Boniface | The Public Markets MRS (Canada Packers site)

Some details on one of the largest infill opportunities in the city.

Developer: Olexa Developments https://olexadevelopments.com

The Public Markets Major Redevelopment Site is located within 4km of Portage and Main, immediately to the east of the future Southeast Rapid Transit Corridor and bounded by industrial lands to the north and east, and rail lines to the south and west, single family south of the rail lines to the south and commercial, single family and multi-family west of the rail lines to the west.

Approximately 185 acres of this total 222 acre Major Redevelopment Site has tremendous redevelopment potential as an infill, medium to high density housing, commercial and industrial development consistent with MRS policies outlined in Complete Communities on a vacant heavy (M3) industrial site.

The Visions for the Public Markets MRS are:
To create a pedestrian-oriented medium to high-density residential community;

To establish a Town Centre providing goods and services to residents of this development and the neighbourhoods in the surrounding area at a scale that is supportive of a pedestrian-oriented environment;

To create a potential Recreation and Wellness Centre offering a broad range of art, culture, recreation and wellness services where all belong, are empowered and equally benefit;

To provide a variety of parks and other outdoor places and recreational paths to create opportunities for Passive and Active Recreation

To offer a wide range of employment, office and supportive commercial; uses in a business park setting.

The development of this vacant industrial site will remediate an otherwise derelict site, reduce urban sprawl, and provide critical support for the future Southeast Rapid Transit Corridor. This site represents a unique opportunity to incorporate a number of transit oriented development principles, with all of the elements of live, play, and work, including employment lands, within close proximity (10 minute walk) of each other, existing full time service transit and future rapid transit.

The Public Markets MRS is envisioned as a pedestrian friendly mixed-use development that is compatible with the existing surrounding neighbourhoods. The conceptual plan includes components of medium to high density residential, commercial and light industrial development. In addition, a multi-use recreational development, featuring indoor soccer, tennis, and field house, and outdoor fields and recreational areas, is envisioned to be centrally located within the development and will offer enhanced recreational facilities accessible to all of the region’s residents.

The proposed medium to high density housing will provide a variety of new housing choices for many income levels, both rental and ownership, including affordable and accessible housing. Commercial and office uses, integrated and adjacent to the medium to high density housing, offer employment opportunities, provide daily household needs within walking distance of home. Industrial uses provide another level of employment opportunity and a transition from the proposed medium to high density residential development to the established industrial railway properties to the east and south.

The potential recreation campus is envisioned to offer a broad range of art, culture, recreation and wellness services and will be designed as a place where all people belong, are empowered and equally benefit. The pedestrian and cycling network and adjacent full service transit on Marion Street and future rapid transit system will be integral components of the site, allowing for reduced reliance on vehicles and reduced parking demand requirements.
