Downtown developments lauded

Re: Former factory, livestock building being converted into apartments (Aug. 11). I live just down Alexander from this building and can't wait to see it completed. The building is looking great, and construction has continued at a steady pace. Well done, Mr. Sandhu and the construction team.

And an early welcome to all those who will move in -- this location is just a five-minute walk to Old Market Square and across Main Street from Stephen Juba Park and Waterfront Drive (and the trails along the river, a beautiful run/bike/walk route to The Forks). We've owned a house here for over five years, and it's amazing how much development has happened in the neighbourhood.

Between their condo project on Sherbrook, the D Condo tower on Assiniboine, the apartments on Alexander and the apartments on Adelaide, Sandhu Developments has done more for downtown Winnipeg in the last three years than any other company I can think of.

I hope they make a ton of money on these projects and keep building more. Great job.

This is much more sensible than residential at The Forks or Main south of Portage. Get the concentration of people where needed. Also, 60 restaurants in all of downtown might be true, but that is an extensive area.

Handout help not the answer

Re: Steeveses skip Sunday handout (Aug. 11). Showing compassion to those who struggle in life is always a good thing. However, this doesn't solve the problem of aggressive panhandling by individuals and frightening innocent people anywhere in Winnipeg. These people can acquire social assistance for food if so desired. I would think the majority of panhandlers want the money for further substance abuse; therein lies the problem.

When Manitoba deputy premier Eric Robinson -- not his spouse or partner -- made the racist comment regarding "do-good white people" in an email about a fundraiser for a women's shelter, he did not rush to Osborne House to help them out. Looks like a double standard is in play here.
