255 Bell Avenue is located in the heart of Winnipeg’s beloved cultural hotspot, Osborne Village. “The Village” is bordered by Wellington Crescent to the west, River Avenue and the Assiniboine River to the north, Donald Street to the east, and Corydon Avenue to the south.
Osborne Village was voted the best place to live in Winnipeg in Uptown Magazine, and the Canadian Institute of Planners Awarded the Village title of "Canada's Great Neighbourhood". The institute described the Village as “good urbanism” that has also become “a way of life.”
It’s easy to see why the Village is a way of life: practically everything you need to live a vibrant and fulfilling lifestyle is located along the strip. Live theatre, dance clubs and dive bar music venues compete for nightlife, and the Village hosts the famous Osborne Street Festival each Canada Day.
Amenities and cuisine are abundant and accessible. Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart, Liquor Mart, and Starbucks share a parking lot often serenaded by buskers. Delectable dining and fast food are equally available.
Recreational opportunities are plentiful as well, with several yoga studios and gyms in the area. 255 Bell is also steps away from The Winnipeg Squash and Racquet Club, and across the street from the Winnipeg Winter Club.
