Historic Sites of Manitoba: Highgate Apartments / DeBary Apartments (626 Wardlaw Avenue, Winnipeg)

This apartment block, erected between 1912 and 1913 on a design by local architect C. S. Bridgman, was one of three built in this area of the city by the Belgo-Canadian Real Estate Company, the others being the Anvers Block (758 McMillan) and the Brussels Block (150-156 Lilac Street). The company retained ownership until 1970 when it was transferred twice before being converted to condominium ownership in 1978. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
