This three-storey brick structure on Roslyn Road in Winnipeg was designed by local architect Charles Saunders Bridgman and built in 1927 by contractor William Moxam at a cost of about $45,000. Measuring 43 feet by 101 feet, the building contained 18 residential suites, each with a living room, kitchen, dining room, bathroom, and one or two bedrooms. In 2017, it became a municipally-designated historic building.
