Largest infill project in Winnipeg: Southwood Circle


An exciting transformation is taking place on a former golf course that is now part of the University of Manitoba Campus. Southwood Circle, located on 112 acres of land, aims to be the most progressive and sustainable community in the country. This infill project promises renewable energy, rapid transit, old growth forest preservation and high building sustainability. This high-density mixed-use development focuses on nature, community, and modern living and offers 12 million square feet of fully zoned residential and commercial space.

Led by Greg Rogers, President and CEO of UM Properties, and his dedicated team, this project is poised to be the largest infill project seen in Winnipeg. In a prime location with excellent connectivity to the surrounding neighbourhood, it represents a unique op-
portunity for developers to be part of something truly exceptional and bring their best in high-rise construction, with a focus on creating aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting architecture.

Let’s paint a vivid picture of what it would feel like to live in such a development.

Imagine waking up in your townhouse, condo or rental high-rise home, the first thing you see as you open your eyes is the lush greenery of the forest, the serene view of trees swaying gently in the breeze or that of people gathering to bike or walk. The harmonious sounds of nature greet you, setting a peaceful tone for your day ahead.

As you step outside, you’re greeted by a community alive with energy and connection. Walkability means that everything you need is just a short stroll away. Whether it’s grabbing a coffee, picking up groceries, or meeting friends at a restaurant or food hall, everything is conveniently within reach.

The outdoor spaces designed with Mother Nature in mind incorporate traditional wisdom and local knowledge to create a sustainable environment that respects and celebrates the interconnectedness of nature and culture. Whether it’s a leisurely walk along the tree-lined trails showcasing berries and medicinal plants to a bike ride on the mountain bike path designed by Alex Mann, or a peaceful moment by the waterfront gathering space, there’s always an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and find moments of serenity and balance.

The integration of Indigenous design and cultural elements adds depth and richness to the community, creating a sense of place and belonging. It’s a space where people from all walks of life can come together, embrace diversity, and learn from one another.

Affordable housing options mean that a diverse range of people can call this community home, fostering inclusivity and a sense of community. The retail corridor provides a vibrant hub for daily amenities and experiences, making it easy to meet daily needs without having to travel far.

The Southwood Circle Master Plan is not just about building homes; it’s about creating a holistic, sustainable community where people can live, work, learn, and play in balance with nature and each other.

The rapid transit system allows you to travel seamlessly from the University of Manitoba to other parts of the city, saving you time and reducing the need for a car. This not only makes commuting easier, and more budget friendly but also encourages a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.

The Southwood Circle Master Plan is a rare opportunity for forward-thinking developers to be part of a project that not only promises financial viability but also makes a meaningful impact on the community and sets a new standard for urban living.
