City grants Sport Manitoba demolition permit for heritage building

WINNIPEG - Sport Manitoba has obtained a demolition permit for the three-storey heritage building that stands next to its new offices on Pacific Avenue.

The non-profit organization wants to demolish part of the former Smart Bag Company Warehouse – a Grade III heritage building – to make way for its new fieldhouse.

Sport Manitoba backed off the demolition request last year, at the behest of the province. But the city’s historical buildings committee agreed to the demolition in principle.

The non-profit organization submitted a new demolition request this year. City staff granted it based on the previous agreement, a spokeswoman for the planning, property and development department said.
