WINNIPEG – The winners of Heritage Winnipeg’s 38th annual Preservation Awards have been announced.

They were named at a free public event on April 17 at the historic Millennium Centre in Winnipeg’s Exchange District.

“It was so wonderful to recognize and celebrate those stewards of our built heritage that are dedicated to see them protected, maintained, and repurposed,” Heritage Winnipeg executive director Cindy Tugwell said in a release.

The Institutional Conservation award went to the Centennial Concert Hall, constructed between 1966 and 1968 as a part of the Province of Manitoba’s 100th anniversary celebrations, and the J.R. Watkins Building won the Commercial Conservation award. At the time of its construction in the early 20th century it was one of the tallest structures in the city.

Three different properties won the Residential Conservation award: Philips Square, the Paulin Street Lofts and a historic home on 153 Burrows Ave.

The Distinguished Service award went to both Ian Moran for Maison Béliveau, which Heritage Winnipeg is honouring for “dedication and commitment to retain and reuse a significant 118-year-old heritage house for residential multi-use in St. Boniface,” The Crescentwood Neighbourhood Heritage Conservation District Committee also won as for having their neighbourhood recognized as a Heritage Conservation District, a release said.

Lovissa Weins won the Youth award for promoting Dalnavert Museum as a heritage site and the broader heritage community in the City of Winnipeg. Danny Schur was recognized with the In Memoriam award for his long-time participation in Doors Open Winnipeg, hosting tours and re-enactments of the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike.
