Historic Sites of Manitoba: Glines House / Tremblay Apartments (55 Hargrave Street, Winnipeg)
Designed by Scottish immigrants Alexander D. Melville and William N. Melville and built in 1906 for businessman George A. Glines, this 2½-storey structure on Hargrave Street in Winnipeg was one of the last single-family mansions built in the former Hudson’s Bay Company Reserve, a tract of land west of the Red River given to the company when it relinquished control of Rupert’s Land. In 1928, it was converted by Joseph A. Tremblay into an apartment block and named Tremblay Apartments. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
