Ambassador Apartments

Built in 1928 on Ouellette Ave. in Windsor, this well kept building was built by local deveolper Clinton Laidlaw. Something tells me, the name of the building was used to tie into the Bridge fever that must have been sweeping the region as the Ambassador Bridge was nearing completion.

The leaded glass over the front door has the building name inset.

An ad from the Windsor Star from December 27, 1928 advertising that the building is “open for inspection”. Rates started at $45 a month.

The Ambassador today, still a great looking building after 78 years.
