Go to the Waterfront, a visionary planning study, provides compelling ideas for mixed-use infill waterfront development in established neighborhoods throughout downtown Winnipeg. The vision includes new buildings and uses, active transportation corridors, new lands for ‘big projects’ of the future, strategic future river crossings, transit oriented development, scenic drives, and public spaces that will elevate property values, quality of life, and capitalize on previously ignored economic development opportunities. The vision is based on principles of sustainability, strong ecological networks and linkages, public access to riverbanks and forests, and mixed use and waterfront living development.

Timing is everything and this vision document, Go to the Waterfront, reveals opportunity. It identifies strategic lands and potential projects that could shape the future of our waterfront. Go to the Waterfront represents Winnipeg’s downtown waterfront vision. It has been inspired by Our Winnipeg, the official development plan for Winnipeg.
