Dundas Terrace

Dundas Terrace

This apartment building, completed in 1890, is a handsome example of the Queen Anne Revival in Canada. Admired for its picturesque qualities, this style was popular in Canadian domestic architecture from the 1880s to the 1910s. As this charming residence illustrates, the use of varied volumes and rooflines, projecting and receding masses, and textured surfaces creates a lively architectural composition. Named for a nearby waterfront esplanade, Dundas Terrace was designed by the renowned Island architect W. C. Harris, a master of this style.
