Historic Sites of Manitoba: Conway Court (165 Kennedy Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick and stone block on Kennedy Street in Winnipeg, measuring 88 feet by 120 feet, was designed by local architect George Gaspar Teeter and built in 1912 by Nelson and Foster at a cost of about $90,000 for Mrs. A. S. Conway. The project used 30 cords of stone, 380,000 dark red bricks, 9,000 cubic yards of plaster, and 450 cubic yards of concrete. The building contained 22 apartments in its original configuration, each served with steam heat, electricity, sewer, and running water. It contains 25 apartments today.
