I was happy to finally hear the formal agreement announced yesterday about the renovation of the Avenue Building.
I looked into the history of the building for my Downtown Winnipeg Blog and it turns out she's a real fighter !
Opened in 1904, the Avenue's first owner went down with the Titanic. Under the new ownership of a former Lieutenant Governor she was completely gutted by fire - twice ! Now, having survived a sometimes uncertain decade sitting vacant it will be great to have the Avenue back !
