Please join the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation for a free tour of the newly restored Fortune Block project. Mark Fortune served on city council from 1879-1881 and became wealthy through real estate. He founded the Winnipeg Real Estate Board but lost his life aboard the Titanic on a return trip from Europe in 1912.
Winnipeg businessman John Pollard has purchased the Fortune Block (built in 1881-82) and the Macdonald Block (built in 1883) and has rehabilitated them for residential and commercial mixed-use.
Registration is required for this tour as the number of participants is limited. The building is wheelchair accessible.
