The North End Community Renewal Corporation lead the steering committee that worked with the Government of Manitoba to acquire and close the former Merchants’ Hotel at the corner of Selkirk Avenue and Andrews Street. This former hotel had long been a source of activity that did not contribute positively to Selkirk Avenue or the North End community in general.
This community lead initiative will see the redevelopment of the former hotel into residentail apartments on the upper floors with a forecaasted mix of commercial and educational tenants on the main floor. The original project pursued the full redevelopment of the available land into a 50,000 sq ft complex. Current realities and leasable limitations will see the expected project developed in two phases. Phase 1 will see the redevelopment of the original building into leasable apartments on the 2nd and 3rd floors with post-secondary education facilities on the main floor. This phase will also see the development of a new 17-20 unit apartment complex on the existing rear parking lot. Phase 2 would have the adjoining lots facing Selkirk Avenue be developed into commercial space on the street level with additional apartment units on the upper floors.
This project will be a major catalyst that will anchor the renewal of the nearby community and further support the educational hub that currently exists on Selkirk Avenue and new commercial enterprises such as the Neechi Commons market on Main Street.
