History

Prior to the mid-1950s the Canadian National Railway owned railway track adjacent to Woodward Ave. When the ground sank, the builders had to refix it with cement, rocks and gravel. This was between Pembina Hwy. and Cambridge St. This track was later declared surplus and sold to the City. The tracks were removed, the ground was redone, the street expanded to include a service road and renamed Grant Ave.

In the late 1960s, the Grant Park Shopping Centre complex was built. It originally featured a Woolco, Gambles, Safeway, and Dominion stores.

Pan Am Pool was built so that Winnipeg could host the 1967 Pan American Games. Until 2006 it was home to the Canadian Aquatic Hall of Fame.

Around the same time the shopping centre, and PanAm Pool were being constructed, various mid-rise and hi-rise apartment buildings were being built. Some of the apartment blocks have undergone major interior and exterior renovations.
