Benefits of Downtown Living
The heart of our city has never looked so good or felt so alive.
Winnipeg’s downtown is a non-stop kaleidoscope of great entertainment and experiences. When you’re retired, you don’t want to miss a minute of it. Fred Douglas Chateau puts you at the centre of it all, in an upscale community that is surprisingly affordable.
IMAGINE HOW VIBRANT AND CONVENIENT YOUR LIFE COULD BE
Every day would begin and end with a breathtaking bird’s-eye view from your huge private balcony.
In summer, you’d head over to The Forks for Canada Day festivities, dragon boat races and sunny patios. You’d explore the innovative new restaurants in the Exchange and see what’s cooking on the stage in Old Market Square.
In winter, you’d stroll to a hockey game or concert in the climate-controlled comfort of the downtown walkway system. No toque or parka required.
All the colourful places that define our city would be just a short walk away – theatres, festivals, museums and galleries. While others trolled for parking spots, you’d spend more time enjoying the sights and sounds.
AT FRED DOUGLAS CHATEAU, THIS IDYLLIC DOWNTOWN LIFESTYLE IS WITHIN YOUR REACH
