Historic Sites of Manitoba: Thelma Apartments (272 Home Street, Winnipeg)
This three-storey brick block on Home Street in Winnipeg, measuring 43 feet by 94 feet, was designed and built by Arni Eggertsson in 1914 (assisted by Thomas Wilson) at a cost of about $50,000. It contained 15 apartments in its original configuration. The building was owned by his son E. G. Eggertson from 1929 to 1954 then by a successive of persons until it was eventually turned into condominiums. Renovations were undertaken between 2005 and 2011 although most of the interior millwork, wall coverings, hardware and stairs remains intact. The building is a municipally-designated historic site.
