Bringing pride and community back to Winnipeg's downtown

The Sports, Hospitality and Entertainment District (SHED) is the focal point of the revitalization of Winnipeg’s downtown. The attractions in this 11 block area will be connected together in a meaningful way and infused with new life by residential and commercial development.

Our team is designing the signature elements that will define this area. Paving materials, custom street lighting, and signage will create a vibrant atmosphere, day or night. A wayfinding system will create landmarks to guide people through the SHED. Wider sidewalks and reduced drive lanes will slow cars, increasing safety and pedestrian traffic to the cafes and shops that will line the street.

Creating and implementing the design guidelines that define the character of the SHED is the first step to creating an area that is user friendly, safe, and desirable to developers. Through the master planning process we will identify the strategic development opportunities to grow the area. The result will be an economically viable district that gives the city a sense of pride and brings community back to their downtown.
