Join the transformation of a historic West End Community location by purchasing a condo at The Icon on Portage. The Icon condominiums will be located at the corner of 1133 Portage Avenue and Minto Street – the site of the iconic Palomino Club. This exceptional West End location is situated on the edge of Wolseley, in close proximity to West Broadway and minutes from downtown and Polo Park providing future residents access to these fabulous areas by foot, bike, bus or car.
With possession slated for fall/winter 2017, this project will consist of 60 extremely affordable condo units spread across four floors with indoor and outdoor parking. Eight of the sixty units have been designed as adaptable suites for accessibility and aging-in-place.
Location, Location, Location! This ideal location is complemented by exceptional craftsmanship and luxury finishes built right into the price of every unit, providing buyers with an outstanding value. Purchasers can choose from 8 affordable suite layouts which include one, two and three bedroom units. With every unit, home owners will enjoy spacious 9 foot ceilings, modern contemporary finishes, balconies, and energy efficient building systems.
This is an exciting project as it is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of Winnipeg residents from locals that want to stay in the area, to residents that want to live close to work, education or entertainment in downtown Winnipeg. Other conveniences in close proximity to this condominium project include grocery stores, health care professionals, pharmacies, coffee shops, liquor marts, retail malls, parks and recreation facilities providing residents with all the necessities within a short distance of their home.
"The West End BIZ is very effective, with lots of streetscaping and improvements that have been made, so I think it’s an up-and-coming area"
