City of Winnipeg's Historical Buildings Inventory

The City of Winnipeg keeps a inventory of its historic buildings.  These buildings are not on the Heritage Conservation list, but are recognized as structures with historic value. The recent loss of the former Regal Furniture Building on Arlington and Logan (not on inventory) highlights the city's need to keep a better inventory of their history.

The following buildings are missing from the Inventory, and recieve no protection from demolition:

1. Kaye's Auction House (1903-06)
2. Assiniboine School (1922)
3. Parkview Building (Portage Avenue @ Parkview St)
4. 655 Logan Avenue
5. nearly all of the commercial blocks on Osborne between River and Corydon
6. former Northern Bank, Main at Selkirk

15. Lord Wolseley School (1915)
16. former John Deere warehouse (Border Glass)
17. Hurtig Building (1902)
18. 516, 524, and 584 Balmoral (1884-1895)
