THE SPOT ON PEMBINA     Location  Winnipeg, MB Date 2013 Size 108,920 sf   Status Built

The Spot on Pembina is an 89 unit, seven-storey apartment building constructed on a commercial infill site in south Winnipeg. The building is located and designed to maximize density and use of an existing parking lot to the west of a strip of commercial buildings facing Pembina Highway. 

The building is constructed using insulated concrete formwork (ICF) construction, providing a durable, highly insulated building structure and envelope. With its bold colour scheme, angular form, mosaic window pattern and cantilevering “Skybox”, The Spot on Pembina nestles comfortably within the collage of signs and billboards along Pembina Highway. This “Skybox” amenity space is conceived as a flexible event space to be shared among building residents that offers expansive views towards Investors Group stadium and the city skyline.

The design of individual suite layouts was conceived to appeal to students, professional singles and young couples. Independently leased individual storage rooms, accessed at the same level as the suite, provide additional flexibility for storage requirements. Each suite is provided with a sheltered balcony area or Juliette-style balcony opening to the principal living space.
