Historic Sites of Manitoba: Paterson Block (54 Donald Street, Winnipeg)

The Paterson luxury apartment block was designed by local architect J. D. Atchison and built in 1909 for grain merchant Hugh S. Paterson, who lived in a large house immediately north of it until the early 1920s when he moved into a suite in the block. He remained there until around 1938. It was sold in 1936 and, in 1946, sold again. It was converted to condominiums in 1986. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
