The Market Lands are situated in the heart of Winnipeg's Exchange District, central to many of Winnipeg's historical, cultural, and emerging community assets. For the last fifty years the site has been home to Winnipeg's Public Safety Building and Civic Parkade. At the time of the founding of the City of Winnipeg in the early 1800's, it was the site of the city's public market and a centre of commerce and trade. The design competition focuses on the 0.8 Acre (0.32Ha) Southern Parcel of the Market Lands. The five short-listed teams are asked to submit conceptual designs for a 100 unit affordable housing complex with a main floor cultural hub, a public market building, and integrated public realm and plaza space.
