Historic Sites of Manitoba: Lindsay Building (228 Notre Dame Avenue, Winnipeg)

Designed for entrepreneur Frank Lindsay by local architects John Woodman and Raymond Carey, the ten-storey office building was built over a 14-month period in 1911-12 by the Kelly-Simpson Company at a cost of $193,000. Major long-term tenants of the building included insurance companies; medical, legal and other professional firms; and the CJOB radio station. In 2004, the building (a municipally-designated historic site) was recognized with a Heritage Winnipeg Preservation Award.
