More Information

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority corporate office also serves as a community clinic. The four-storey office and six-storey parkade were completed through an expedited design-build process to allow the organisation to relocate promptly. Verne Reimer was the lead architect on the project. Demolition, design, construction, and completion all occurred within a 13-month period and the WRHA took possession in 2009. The Starland and Rex Theatres as well as Jack’s Hostel were demolished to make way for the project.
