The non-residential buildings in the study are are characterized by low heights. Almost 90% of the buildings are 3 storeys or less. Buildings 7 storeys or higher are few in number and comprise only 2.2% of the total. The taller buildings are located mainly along Portage Avenue on the north side between Donald and Main, and on the south side between Edmonton and Smith. A few tall buildings are scattered throughout the rest of the area, notably the Norquay Building, the Winnipeg Clinic, the Fort Garry Hotel, and the Medical Arts Building. Table 3.5 gives the figures on building heights, while Plate 8 indicates the pattern graphically.
