Lindsay Building, 228 Notredame Avenue - 1912 - Featuring a steel frame with reinforced concrete slab construction, and a cream coloured terra cotta finish. Designed for entrepreneur Frank Lindsay by local architects John Woodman and Raymond Carey, the planned 7 storey but constructed ten-storey office building was built over a 14-month period in 1911-12 by the Kelly-Simpson Company at the price of $193,000. Major long-term tenants of the building included insurance companies; medical, legal and other professional firms; and the CJOB radio station. Located at the intersection of three major thoroughfares in downtown Winnipeg, the Lindsay Building is one of a handful of terra-cotta office towers erected during the city’s pre-World War I development boom. The main external alteration to the building was the replacement of main-floor windows and the closing of some entrances.
