Manitoba Hydro Place: Climate Responsive Architecture Consortium
Street-Scaled Podium

Launch Slideshow

The Manitoba Hydro Place tower sits on a street-scaled podium to create an active and visually accessible base, minimizing the skyscraper-effect on the neighbourhood and inviting the community to integrate the building into the urban fabric.

With a vested interest in the downtown, leasing opportunities in the base building are limited in an effort to stimulate the support of local businesses, and to encourage staff to experience their city. Restaurants and bars are already reporting a tremendous increase in revenue as a result of the influx of over 1600 Hydro employees to the area.
