Office Building Manitoba The Paris Building, Winnipeg

Case Study


The Paris Building is a two-time recipient of the Heritage Winnipeg Preservation Award located in downtown Winnipeg. Keeping with the original 1915-17 architecture throughout, this character building is a beautiful and unique place to spend your days. Many upgrades have complemented the operations of the building and there are Leasing opportunities in space consisting of over 8,000 sq. ft.


Our approach to building value for this specific asset included:

  • Develop strategy to reposition the building by upgrading base building / tenant premises to meet the current requirements of the office environment.
  • Focus leasing to obtain a strong Government tenant base and obtain 100% occupancy of the building.


We re-branded the building and a major Government tenant was initially landed.  The remainder of the building was leased to other government programs and third party tenants.  NewWest oversaw all capital improvement projects and the Landlord and tenant fit-ups for the new tenants.  Subsequently, the building has sold twice for significant capital gains and McCor has retained the management throughout.
