Moon Apartments

Moon Apartments

Designation Date:  June 12, 2007
Designation Authority:  Town of Carberry
Present Owner:  Privately Owned

The sturdy Moon Apartments, solid in its brick construction, modest in its aesthetics and capable of multiple uses, is a dignified example of a two-part commercial building that has provided much needed retail, office and residential space since the early development of Carberry’s business district. Built in the late 1890s, the structure’s well-lit main-floor storefronts, upper-storey Classical features and continuity of functions convey a distinct sense of time and place. Because of its wide frontage, the block also has a vital role in maintaining the integrity of its streetscape, an intact section of the designated Historic Downtown Carberry district that contains several buildings of similar age, height, alignment and construction.
