Building a Community

The Refinery District in southwest Winnipeg is surrounded by many of the city's fastest growing and most affluent residential communities. This up-and-coming community will be among Canada's first Transit Oriented Developments (TOD) and will feature a variety of active and traditional transportation options serviced by a designated station on the Rapid Transit corridor.

The Colliers Winnipeg team successfully marketed the development as a "live and work" community and sold a 135-acre industrial site to Hopewell Development Corporation, one of Canada's leading commercial real estate developers. The site resulted in a 102 acre net usable mixed-use infill development and is expected to become the new standard for mixed-use developments in Winnipeg.
