CLOSE TO EVERYTHING FUN
The quiet concrete building is surrounded by downtown vitality, with dozens of shops and restaurants, and even the bus mall, all within a one block radius. Walk another block to get to river trails, Galaxy Theatre, Midtown Plaza, YMCA, and the Public Library. We are located 6 blocks from Riversdale shops, restaurants and the Farmer's Market, and a mile from the U of S campus. Our lower level Drinkle Mall is home to 14 shops including a hat maker, confectionary, vintage clothing, yoga studio, vintage artifacts, up-cycled furnishings, new age, tailor, dance studio, vintage jewelry shop, hair salon, goldsmith, watch repair, and hobby shop. Many of our mall merchants work and live in the building, adding to the sense of community and safety. Our building is also home to D3 Coworking center, a newly renovated workspace creating community building tenants and entrepreneurs. The Drinkle3 Building is rated by walkscore.com as among the top 2% of buildings nationally for ‘walkable’ access to services, with even a higher rating for bike access.
SUSTAINABILITY and PLACE MAKING
At Drinkle3 we believe that context is the key to sustainability. Old downtown buildings like Drinkle3 can play an important role in countering the negative impact of urban sprawl by leveraging the tools at our disposal such as public art, heritage, bikes, transit, community, and fun. That’s why over the years we have sponsored initiatives such as Saskatoon CarShare Coop, Saskatoon Cycles, DrinkleFest Better Block Party, Milden Food Project, Mendel’s Murals, Children’s Discovery Museum, tenant get-togethers, and more. In 2007 the Drinkle Building received a Cultural Capitals grant, through the City of Saskatoon and Heritage Canada, to install a 72 foot tall artwork featuring portraits of seven city founders. The artwork was produced by Henry VanSeters and can be seen on the north wall of the building. We also received a grant that year to produce a photo exhibit detailing the history of the Drinkle Building and its founder J. C. Drinkle. That exhibit is available to be viewed during business hours in the lower level mall.

Unfortunately, Drinkle3 does not have parking. Parking can be dificult downtown so many of our tenants rely on bikes and bus. For drivers we can usually obtain a monthly spot next door for $150/mo.
