Exchange District

165 McDermot, The Porter Building, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3B 0S1, Canada


Known to Winnipeggers for many years as the Galpern candy factory, this large brick warehouse is situated in the commercial district east of Main Street at the intersection of Rorie Street and McDermot Avenue. Before this building was erect in 1906, a blacksmith shop was on the site,1 which demonstrates both the growth of the young city's commercial district, and the way it expanded in all directions from its symbolic nucleus at Portage and Main.
The firm of James Porter and Company previously had been housed in cramped quarters on Main Street. James Porter employed John H.G. Russell, one of the city's best architects, to design a new warehouse for the firm in 1906.
Today this building is vacant and ready for development. With highly coveted square footage on the main floor for comercial developent, and 5 stories above, prime for residential development.
