The intent is to involve citizens in urban potentials of the underused and/or abandoned spaces of Winnipeg. Through a community based ideas competition, people will be encouraged to come up with imaginative solutions for the site. There are no limitations to the ideas, and explorative ideas are encouraged.

IDEAS COMPETITION & THE COMMUNITY

By giving the voice to the community, people are able to take ownership and provide their ideas to a platform that emphasizes a shared collective of ideas. The Alexander Docks have become one of these derelict spaces in which the local community has the opportunity to voice their ideas of how it could be better used. Located along the Red River, there is even greater opportunity to link the downtown with access to the river. We’re posing this question to the community - what type of public space would most benefit the site? All proposals will be on display and continue the conversation of how to develop the docks area. Submissions will also be sent to the City of Winnipeg to show just how invested Winnipeggers are in our public spaces. Think big; use your imagination; think about what the space and downtown could really benefit from on the site. 

     There is a lot of potential in our city, so why not dream big.

“The revitalization of the Alexander Docks site is the last piece of the puzzle in a 15 year journey to create the wonderful Exchange Waterfront Neighbourhood.”
— Angela Mathieson | Centre Venture Development Corporation
Winnipeg’s riverfront is an asset. The Forks’ Go to the Waterfront is all about connecting communities to one another in meaningful ways. The Alexander Dock site is an important part of that vision and will bring people back to the waterfront to enjoy one of our most amazing amenities.
— PAUL JORDAN | THE FORKS NORTH PORTAGE PARTNERSHIP
In recent years, the Exchange District’s vast potential has started to become reality. Its storefronts are teeming with activity and its streets are bustling with people— residents, even! The Alexander Docks site is a key location for the East Exchange, and bringing it to life will further revitalize what is quickly becoming a favourite Winnipeg destination.
— DAVID PENSATO | THE EXCHANGE DISTRICT BIZ
The Exchange Waterfront District is Winnipeg’s top emerging destination for food, hotels, shopping, and hosts some of Winnipeg’s most innovative multi-residential housing. In the center of Waterfront Drive sits a dilapidated chasm – the once vibrant Alexander Docks. This wasteland reflects poorly on our neighborhood, our businesses and Winnipeg as a whole. It communicates to our visitors that we don’t care about our community. That’s not what Winnipeg is about, so we need to show some leadership and change this unfortunate situation immediately
