John H.G. Russell, one of the city’s best-known and most prolific architects, designed 545 Broadway. It is one of a series of buildings that appeared in a prominent residential district along Broadway, west of the Legislative Building, Fort Osborne Barracks and All Saints Anglican Church, during Winnipeg's pre-World War I development boom.

This grand, Queen Anne structure was built in 1904 at a cost of  $9,000 and involved seven separate contractors. It was built on the north side of Broadway between Colony and Good streets for Robert R. Wilson of Campbell Brothers and Wilson Company, wholesale grocers.
