A: Primary Significance
Prominently located near the beach, Tudor Manor was built as a three-storey apartment building in 1927-1928, designed by Townley and Matheson. Its half timber decoration, turrets, and massing are characteristic of Tudor Revival architecture.
In 1987, a 23-storey residential tower designed by Paul Merrick Architects was constructed behind the refurbished facade of the original building. An example of adaptive reuse in the city, the tower solution was chosen as it interrupted fewer views, cast fewer shadows and ensured the original building could be rehabilitated economically.
