Trident Construction (Addition)
Designed by local architectural firm Moody Moore and Partners, 1650 Harrow Street (also 820 Taylor Avenue) was constructed between 1957 and 1958. This towering structure was originally constructed as a head office for the newly created Manitoba Hydro Electric Board (established in 1953). The company became Manitoba Hydro in 1961, a crown corporation of the government of Manitoba. Subsequently, in 1963, the Manitoba Power Commission (MPC) amalgamated and all 375 staff relocated to this building.
Construction of the new Manitoba Hydro Place in 2009 meant re-purposing 820 Taylor.
