Farrell Apartments – 1929 – Moy & Assumption

Thomson, who’s firm is still active today. The was a large outcry over the proposed apartment building in an area planned with only single family homes, and duplexes. The final building that was eventually built, differed slightly from the rendering above, but it was fairly close. It was, and remains a pretty handsome building.

The building, still stands, and is well maintained at the south west corner of Assumption & Moy. A smaller parapet and a different window arrangement on the left side of the building, but well maintained.
