The CMHR will be one of the most innovative buildings in Canadian architecture and its construction will span three years commencing in the spring of 2009. The base building is substantially complete since the end of 2012 and Inauguration of the Museum will take place in 2014.
The construction site is bordered by trees. Several concrete structures are appearing in the middle of the construction site. In the foreground there is a street and in the background we see the cable structure of the Provencher bridge as well as office buildings in Saint-Boniface, a Winnipeg suburb.
