At 511 River Avenue, in the heart of Osborne Village, you will find a majestic building. It was once the First Church of Christ Scientist, built in 1911, and now shines bright as a trendy condominium complex.
Planning for the construction of the grand church commenced in 1907. A site was chosen for the First Church of Christ Scientist and years later in 1911, the doors opened and the first services were offered on the main floor. The auditorium planned to seat 1, 060 people!
In 1916, the first service was held in the fully completed $100,000 church - it was a very proud day for the Winnipeg Christian science congregation. Four grand staircases, mahogany pews, and green carpet were just few of the design details in this notable place of worship.
With beautiful words at each corner, such as "LOVE", "TRUST", you can't help but feel the building was built with the BEST of intentions.
FAST FORWARD to 2011- the building was purchased by a real estate investment company and the condo conversion began!
Walk into the sleek glass front entry to find a trendy lobby, clever wall bike storage & more!
