Two years after fire, Massey Manor is back

Posted by Adam in Local News, 5/19, 8:02 AM

Two years after Spring 2018’s downtown fire, another of the four buildings devastated by the blaze has turned the page. 

Massey Manor has re-opened its doors following the methodical process of $8 million in renovations to undo fire and subsequent water damage to the 59-unit apartment building, CBC is reporting today. 

When fully occupied by tenants the newly-renovated building will once again provide affordable housing for more than 150 people. For more details, an extensive story by CBC including interior photos can be read at https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5573783 

Another fire victim, Christie’s Office Plus, celebrated relocating to its newly constructed Richmond Avenue East facility in late 2019 after temporarily moving to space in Brandon's Town Centre following the blaze. 

The fire took place two years ago today on May 19, 2018. Occupants of all impacted buildings were evacuated, with a City of Brandon press release later that day reporting no injuries or fatalities amongst Massey's more than 100 residents at the time whom were re-located to a city hotel.  

Updated: May 19, 9:24pm. Corrected renovation/damage amount
