Winnipeg’s tallest office tower has a new owner.
David, Gail and Leonard Asper have sold 201 Portage to Harvard Developments and Greystone Managed Investments Inc.
Terms of the deal, which is expected to close within the next five weeks, have not been released.
The 33-storey tower at Portage and Main is home to high-profile tenants such as RBC-Dominion Securities, MNP and Thompson Dorfman Sweatman.
The transaction also includes an empty lot at 416 Main St. and the adjoining parkade.
In a joint statement issued by their company, Asper Tower Inc., the three siblings said they were pleased with the outcome and wished Harvard and Greystone well.
"We’ve worked hard to provide excellent tenant service and, through the development of our courtyard and video panel, to also play a meaningful role for public celebrations at Portage and Main," they said.
