Dreams of Castles
in the Sky

The challenges for Portage Ave grow each year. A search is on for the way Portage Ave used to be. Lively, crowded, the place you wanted to be. Things you wanted to see. The hot spot. But is it possible to turn back time to the way Portage used to be?

THE FUTURE PORTAGE AVE
DOUG CLARK
You have to give people a reason to be in your downtown beyond retail. You've got to bring them for festivals and events. You've got to give them an opportunity to do things in the downtown they can't do anywhere else in the city. And as when such, when you have them downtown you have an opportunity to get them through your door.

RESIDENTIAL
ARTHUR MAURO
In the final analysis we have to develop a hinterland to Portage Ave where people live.

MEL MICHENER
We desperately need much more residential development; not just social housing which we have some of, but middle class people with money that they want to spend. If the downtown is going to be successful as a retail operation it has to distinguish itself and it has to be destination shopping for a particular kind of product.

NAR: Manitoba Hydro will build a major new office on Portage avenue. This new signature office tower will house 2,000 new employees and is expected to improve the future of downtown Winnipeg.

EMBRACING ABORIGINALS
NAR: Winnipeg's growing aboriginal population is more and more present along Portage Ave. CentrePlan addresses this issue:

DAVID ASPER
We have to integrate aboriginal people into society. I would like to see more history and more presence of aboriginal culture throughout the downtown. And I think it would serve as a point of pride to a people we've really let go.

ARTHUR MAURO
I think the aboriginals will ultimately be one of the great contributors the new vitality of central Winnipeg.

ARENA?
NAR: Some are placing optimism in the new arena project being built on the old Eaton's site, planned to open in 2004. However opinion is mixed as to whether the arena will succeed in reviving Winnipeg's ailing downtown.

DOUG CLARK
The True North project that was announced will be a downtown arena and entertainment centre, which will not save downtown or be the panacea of downtown redevelopment. But will certainly bring a large number of entertainment users to the downtown area; which we have been fighting for, for a long time.
