East: 575 Pritchard Ave, a two-storey single-detached dwelling
South: across Pritchard Avenue are one- and two-storey single-detached dwellings.
West: across McGregor is the Association of United Ukrainian Canadians Temple (591 Pritchard Ave.)

Proximity to Amenities and Services
The site is identified within the “Established Neighbourhoods - Mature Communities” policy area under the Complete Communities Direction Strategy 2.0. The area is primarily residential in character while providing complimentary commercial, employment, educational and recreational uses.
Established neighbourhoods are stable, but not static. The future success of these areas depends on the ability to adapt and change. They present an opportunity to facilitate residential development that positively contributes to neighbourhood character and revitalization. Expanding housing options for residents in a manner that is sensitive and complementary to existing development, building more complete communities, and aligning with the City’s residential intensification target. This will contribute to area growth and stability over the long-term and will expand housing options for young adults, families and older adults entering retirement.
What is Complete Communities 2.0?
Complete Communities 2.0 is one of four direction strategies supporting the City’s long-range development plan (OurWinnipeg 2045). The strategy guides land use and development in Winnipeg.
The vision for the development will be providing a four-storey apartment building with 26 units of 1- and 2-bedrooms. As well, 7 of the units will be designated as CMHC affordable. The interior parking is hidden behind the main floor units and lobby.
Different facade materials are being used to break up the wall from an aesthetic perspective. Outdoor amenity space will be located on the east side of the building, providing a patio area available to residents.
The future development application will require a rezoning of the land from “R2” Residential Two-Family to “RMF-L” Residential Multi Family Large to accommodate the number of units being provided.
