Looking down in the site from the arena yesterday, it's actually kind of insane how quickly they've been moving. The NE corner is prob like 2 storeys down already.

^ Yeah, it really looks to be going about as fast as these kinds of projects go in Winnipeg. Even the hoarding and shoring looks like the stuff you see on huge Toronto and Calgary projects!

Quite a change from the usual Winnipeg project timeline of announcement first, and then five years until construction starts...

Perhaps at this point, business owners are formulating plans to eventually move to the area. The potential for Graham Ave is amazing.

Almost feels like they are trying to make significant progress on their plan before making a public announcement so that when people are against the idea it is "too late" to stop it.
