Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gault Building / Artspace Building (100 Arthur Street, Winnipeg)

Designed by James H. Cadham and constructed in 1900, this massive six-storey brick and stone warehouse on Arthur Street in Winnipeg was built for the Gault brothers of Montreal to house their rapidly expanding wholesale dry goods business. In 1903, the building was expanded to the south and two storeys were added. A plaque is mounted on the northwest corner of the building, which is a municipally-designated historic site.
