Roslyn Court Apartments
Enlarge text: smaller | larger
In 1996 this structure was recognized by the Historic
Sites and Monuments Board of Canada as one of the country’s
finest apartment buildings in the Queen Anne Revival style
of architecture. Roslyn Court Apartments originated during
a period of rapid economic and physical growth in Winnipeg
which had given rise to affluent suburbs such as Fort Rouge
and Crescentwood on the south side of the Assiniboine River.
This is where the large single-family homes of Winnipeg’s
business, professional and political elites were found.
This is also where most of the city’s pre-1915 luxury
apartment blocks were.
