301 was built in 1927 for MacDonalds Consolidated Inc. and later became the venue for an array of iconic Saskatoon establishments such as Trader’s Steak House, Casbah and Sliders. More recently, 301 was the EGADZ Youth Centre headquarters for 20 years before being purchased by Legacy Land Inc. The building was originally covered in cedar shingles; removal of these shingles revealed the true character of the building and solidified its status as a ‘hidden gem’ of Saskatoon’s historic downtown.
301 has combined its iconic heritage look with a variety of modern aesthetics, creating a unique contrast, rare in the Saskatoon market. In 2014, the City of Saskatoon launched their Northern Downtown Master plan, outlining the City’s intention to create a new, vibrant neighborhood including a large central park to the north of 301.
With this new neighborhood coming to the north and the established bustle of Saskatoon’s current downtown to the south, 301 is perfectly located to take advantage of both areas. Combining the strategic location with the distinctive look and functionality, 301 provides limitless opportunities for retail, office, or restaurant users on any of its three floors.
