Historic Sites of Manitoba: Anvers Apartments (758 McMillan Avenue, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick block at the southeast corner of the intersection of McMillan Avenue and Arbuthnot Street in Winnipeg, measuring 100 feet by 60 feet, was designed by local architect Charles Saunders Bridgman and built in 1912 by the Claydon Brothers for the Belgo-Canadian Real Estate Company at a cost of about $110,000. The building, now a municipally-designated historic site, contained 24 apartments in its original configuration.
