STREETSIDE DEVELOPMENTS’ LARGE-SCALE RESTORATION AND CONVERSION OF HISTORICAL BUILDINGS IN WINNIPEG’S EAST EXCHANGE DISTRICT DELIVERS LOFT-STYLE CONDOS.
The District is one of the largest residential conversion projects of its kind in Western Canada. In 2010, StreetSide Developments took ownership of almost an entire block of existing historical buildings (seven in total) in the East Exchange District, and converted them into four loft apartment-style condominium buildings. The conversion included 20 floors, including basement levels, and a total area of 175,048 sq. ft.
StreetSide Developments partnered with the Historical Building and Resource Committee, and 701 Architecture to maintain the buildings’ historic features.
With construction beginning in 2011, StreetSide Developments built a total of 150 new residential units around the buildings’ original structural features, such as timber beams, visible industrial mechanical systems, an existing freight elevator, old-fashioned vaults, and coal shafts, in certain units. All of these elements are paired with modern finishes, and brand-new energy efficiencies.
Retrofitting expertise was needed in the restoration process, and StreetSide Developments completed the asbestos abatement, removed lead-based paint from pipes and doors by way of sand blasting, and uninstalled, safely disposed of, and replaced florescent lamps containing Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCBs).
StreetSide Developments was the general contractor for the commercial interior office space within District 139 condos, which was certified LEED® Platinum. This office space is officially Manitoba’s first commercial interiors LEED® v4 Platinum certified project.
The District is the 2014 and 2015 Residential Conversion Award Winner for the Heritage Winnipeg Preservation Award of Excellence. It is also a 2018 finalist for the CHBA National Awards for Housing Excellence.
