The Police HQ Effect: Property map

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 13/12/2013 (1344 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Since 2008, when the City of Winnipeg first revealed a plan to buy and renovate the former Canada Post building, 27 properties in the immediate vicinity of the new police headquarters -- more than 40 per cent of the properties within a one-block radius of the new HQ -- have changed hands.

Real-estate experts say the run on real estate appears coincidental, although there’s no question the presence of 1,400 police officers will improve the perception of public safety in the vicinity.

The red box on this map shows the new Police HQ. Black boxes outline properties that have changed hands since 2008.  Use the plus and minus buttons at bottom right to zoom in our out of the map, then click on any outlined property for more details including the property's owner, sold date, value in 2008 and 2013, and a Google Street View image of the property.

See Saturday's paper for the full story.
