Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bellcrest Apartments (72 Lenore Street, Winnipeg)

Built in 1928 on two lots at the northwest corner of Lenore Street and Wolseley Avenue, this three-storey apartment block was distinguished from others built around the same time by having two main facades made from rough- and smooth-cut limestone rather than the more common brick with stone trim. It was designed and built by local contractor Bently Taylor at a cost of $75,000 for owner Sidney T. Jones, secretary-treasurer of the Empire Loan Company of Winnipeg. The structure contained 19 suites, four in the basement and five on each of the upper three floors. It is a municipally-designated historic site.
