Historic Sites of Manitoba: Scott Apartments / Maryland Apartments (426 Maryland Street, Winnipeg)

This three-storey brick and stone block on Maryland Street in Winnipeg, measuring 57 feet by 106 feet, was designed by Edgar Prain and built in 1912 by the Daykin Scott Construction Company. The structure contained 28 apartments in its original configuration. The name was changed to Maryland Apartments around 1919.

Damaged by fire in January 2019, the building was boarded up and awaiting restoration when another fire occurred on 8 January 2020. The building was demolished later that month.
