Triovest is pleased to announce the receipt of The Outstanding Building of the Year, Corporate Facility, to cityplace, located at 234 Donald Street in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The building was constructed in 1921 as a warehouse facility for the Eaton’s Department Store. The property was redeveloped in 1979, and now occupies a 3-acre site in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. The cityplace office tower provides 339,000 sq. ft. of office space to an estimated 2,000 downtown workers.
This award was received in recognition of several categories. On the environmental stewardship front, cityplace is a BOMA BESt Level 3-certified building, and tenants have enjoyed improvements to the building’s heating, cooling, and lighting systems, water conservation, reduction of peak electrical demand, and upgrading of the direct digital controls system.
cityplace and its tenants also support local causes from the Citizens on Patrol Program, to Cycling for Diabetes, Habitat for Humanity and the Christmas Cheer Board. The building’s holiday giftwrapping offering is also a fundraiser for the Children’s Wish Foundation.

The property management team also utilizes nationally developed business continuity and pandemic plans, which are modified for site-specific use. The team plans for and participates in ongoing training to improve health and safety awareness and operational best practices.
