Beautiful, luxury home. Easy access to anywhere in the city. River-front view. Trees, walking paths and green areas. If all of this describes your dream home, then a condo on Winnipeg’s Wellington Crescent is exactly what you need. Perfect for established couples or families with children, a luxury condo along Wellington Crescent offers large suites with some of the best views in the city.

Wellington Crescent begins at the outermost east section of Assiniboine Park, and winds alongside the Assiniboine River all the way to the west side of Osborne Village. To the north, there’s a fantastic view of the river, and to the south you can find residential areas before reaching the shops on Grosvenor and Corydon. Famed for being a lovely bike route (closed to cars on Sundays and holidays), Wellington Crescent is a street that Winnipeggers will purposely come to simply to admire the view and enjoy the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere of the neighbourhood.

Wellington Crescent Condos

Condos along Wellington Crescent have the best of both worlds: they combine a luxurious life with the convenience of living close to the downtown. In the summer, enjoy leisurely walks and bike rides along the wide roads and nearby parks; in the winter, grab your skates and walk the 30 seconds to Assiniboine River to join other Winnipeggers on the river trail.

Stores and shops aren’t too far away, either. Between Osborne Village, West Broadway and Corydon Avenue, it’s easy to walk or drive to any of the nearby stores, restaurants and boutiques. From Safeway to Vita Health to Charisma to Out of the Blue to Silver Lotus and many others, you can find a store to meet all your needs depending on which of the nearby neighbourhoods you visit. Since Wellington Crescent is adjacent to so many bustling neighbourhoods, there are also buses to catch at any time of the day. Take any of routes 62, 68, 70 or 95 to get where you need to be around Winnipeg.

Schools are abundant in this area of Winnipeg: Winnipeg Technical College for secondary and post-secondary students (609 Erin Street), Westgate Mennonite Collegiate for grades seven to 12 with an emphasis on Christian Studies (86 West Gate), Herzing College that offers market-driven programs (723 Portage Avenue), Balmoral Hall School for girls from nursery level to grade 12 (630 Westminster Avenue), the Collegiate at the University of Winnipeg which prepares students grades nine to 12 for university and lifelong learning, and the University of Winnipeg for undergraduate and graduate programs (both at 515 Portage Avenue) are all just a few kilometers away from many Wellington Crescent condos.

Luxury condos on Wellington Crescent are like no other; the neighbourhood retains grandness with its delightful mix of residential with natural green space and commercial businesses, making it one of the hottest places to live in Winnipeg.
