Construction has begin on a new office complex at Confusion Corner.

Construction began Friday on a new six-storey office building at Confusion Corner.

Osborne Place will offer more than 32,000 square-feet of office space and onsite parking, and is meant to be part of the revitalization efforts at the city's busiest intersection.

"We're pleased that Osborne Place will meet and exceed the goals outlined by the City of WInnipeg's Corydon-Osborne area plan," said Adrian Schulz, CEO of Imperial Properties, the property management company leading the project and leasing the building.

"The city's emphasis on high-rise and mixed-use developments feels like a new beginning, and we're proud that our redevelopment of the Osborne and Pembina corner is validating and kick-starting this plan."

Osborne Place is the first entry of a two-phase plan for the site. Phase two will see a 10- 12-storey residential building built next door to the now in-construction office tower in 2017.
