The Avenue on Portage

/ Live / Play / Experience /

How can three little words so perfectly encapsulate 100 years of history, two buildings and one stellar restoration project? It seems unlikely, given the history of Winnipeg’s most famous street that one development can be so all encompassing, but that was before, and this is now.

The Avenue on Portage aims to shatter expectations about what you thought urban living could be. It’s time to see the whole picture; to see what urban living should be. See how Live+Play+Experience equals something new, something fresh, something exciting and something that has to be seen to be believed.

Once was two, now is one

The Avenue on Portage is a composition of two separate Winnipeg landmarks – the Avenue building, constructed in 1904 and Hample, finished two years later. Unoccupied for the past decade, the two structures have now been united to create the Avenue on Portage.

  • 15 Residential Units:
    3 Storey Addition
  • 60 Residential Units:
    5 Storey Renovation
  • Commercial Tenant:
    Manitoba Start Immigration Services
  • Underground Parking

A building greater than the sum of its parts, The Avenue on Portage is a place where what was once old is now new, what was two is now one and what was once lifeless now beats with the heart of a realized dream and a neighborhood reborn.


Rising with the sun

With high ceilings, an open concept design and incredible views, The Avenue East includes 60 rental units that range in size from 430 to 1,020 square feet. Each suite features its own distinct floor plan and gives you access to a private, residents-only gym and massive, seventh-floor rooftop patio with four BBQs, a sundeck and amazing panorama of downtown Winnipeg.


Setting over the city

The Avenue West is a three-storey addition to the existing structure, comprising 15, newly constructed rental units. Each suite features its own patio and over 1,000 square feet of living space. In addition, a second outside patio with communal access gives you a place to relax and take in all that downtown living has to offer.
