Belvedere Apartments

This buff brick building on Glengarry, just south of Wyandotte has long been a favourite of mine. There’s a mystery to this place that I’ve yet to discover…

Built sometime between 1925 and 1937, the building has changed names. (There is no listing of the place in the 1924 directory, but it’s on the 1937 fire map as the Belvedere Apartments). I’m going to guess the date of construction to be between 1925-1930. The name on the pediment of the building reads E.B. Apartments, but the front door read “Belvedere Apartments”.

Sadly in the last few months, the original entrance was lost and replaced with this more sterile one. It’s amazing how a little change can strip away so much character.

A view of the building from streetview shows the entrance still in place last summer.
