True North Square is inching its way to completion in downtown Winnipeg.

On Thursday, officials behind the roughly $400 million project unveiled more information on the second phase of construction and what Winnipeggers can expect to see inside.

“This time next year, our tenants at True North Square will be working in Winnipeg’s first new class A office building in over a quarter of a century,” True North Sports and Entertainment CEO and President, Jim Ludlow, said.

Ludlow said tenants are scheduled to move in to tower one of four at 242 Hargrave on June 29, 2018 guaranteed.

He said he’s optimistic nothing will get in the way of this deadline as he has committed to many of the tenants that they can move in on that date in less than a year.
