Winnipeg is the largest city in Manitoba, Canada. Winnipeg has 10 buildings that stand taller than 85 m (279 ft).

Winnipeg's history of towers began with the Union Bank Tower (1904), the National Bank Building (1911), and the Hotel Fort Garry in 1913. Buildings in the city remained relatively short in the city until the late 1960s when the city experienced its first skyscraper boom, with the construction of the Richardson Building, Holiday Towers, and Grain Exchange Tower all being constructed during this time. From 1980 to 1990, Winnipeg witnessed a major expansion of skyscraper and high-rise construction. Many of the city's office towers were completed during this period, such as Canwest Place and the Evergreen Place towers. A twenty-year lull in building construction came after this expansion, though Winnipeg has experienced a much smaller second building expansion beginning in the late 2000s and continuing into the present.[1]

The tallest tower that is under construction in Winnipeg is Pembina Hall but will only be 43 m (141 ft) and 13 storeys, however, The tallest development that is under construction in Winnipeg is the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. At 100 m (328 ft) tall, the building is expected to become the sixth-tallest in the city. As of February 2011, there are 5 high-rises under construction, approved for construction, and proposed for construction in Winnipeg. [2]

As of 2011, Winnipeg had 143 completed high-rise buildings, with 5 more under construction, 3 approved for construction, and 2 proposed.
