Easy city living, connected and inclusive.
Railside marks a major step in the evolution of The Forks, offering residential development for the first time — completing the vision for the site as a mixed-use urban district. Emphasizing environmental, economic, and social sustainability, residences will celebrate the site’s abundant cultural, historic, and recreational assets, while maintaining access for both residents and visitors.
The development plan allows for mid-rise, four- to six-storey buildings, creating a medium-density residential village. The main floor of every building is designated as public commercial space, prioritizing the pedestrian experience – an eclectic mix of retail, services, eateries, and other unique businesses. These spaces will complement the businesses and organizations on The Forks site and in The Forks Market.
A vibrant living experience found here.
Railside is a welcoming place for everyone. Whether you’re looking to own or rent, residences will be priced for a wide range of income levels. Envisioned as a diverse and cosmopolitan neighbourhood, Railside connects The Forks to downtown Winnipeg.
Building orientations are set around a series of connected courtyards and plazas. Public spaces integrate seating and green spaces and feature works of art. The grids are arranged in a way that intends to help block wind, and harkens back to the historic alignment of the railway lines.
A Rapid Transit Hub is envisioned at Union Station, with a pedestrian promenade planned along Israel Asper Way, turning it into an all-weather active transportation route.
