Built in 1912, the Rodd Apartments is located in The Quarters redevelopment area, immediately east of downtown Edmonton. The owner of the Rodd Apartments had the building designated as a Municipal Historic Resource on May 30, 2017.
Scope of Work
Following the designation by City Council of the Rodd Apartments as a Municipal Historic Resource, the owner of the Rodd Apartments engaged Situate to rezone the property to a (DC1) Direct Development Control District to preserve its heritage character.
Originally constructed as a single detached home and later converted into an apartment block, the Rodd Apartments building boasts an unusual architectural style that includes a front gable end roof and a stucco-clad false front. The building is historically valuable for its association with the development of the Jewish community in the Boyle Street neighbourhood of Edmonton in the early part of the 20th Century.
