Historic Sites of Manitoba: Princeton Apartments / Kenmore Apartments (314 Broadway, Winnipeg)

The Princeton Block was originally known as the Kenmore Block when it was constructed for the Kenmore Apartment Company on the south side of Broadway in 1909, on a design by local architect W. W. Blair. Its tenants included managers, professionals and workers employed in nearby businesses, hotels, stores, and railway facilities. In 1928, it was purchased by George Baldry (1844-1959), President of the Baldry Engineering and Construction Company, and renamed the Princeton Apartments. His firm owned the property until the late 1970s, and also housed its business there during the 1930s and early 1940s. It remains one of two pre-1910 apartment blocks (the other being Strathmore Block immediately to the west) that once dominated Broadway, most having been replaced by commercial towers. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
