English:
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.

French: Cet immeuble d'appartements constitue un bel exemple d'architecture néo- Queen Anne au Canada. Fort apprécié pour ses qualités pittoresques, ce style marqua l'architecture domestique canadienne des années 1880 à 1910. Comme en témoigne ce charmant édifice, le recours à une variété de volumes et de profils de toits, de masses en saillie et en retrait ainsi que de surfaces texturées permet d'animer la composition architecturale. Tirant son nom d'une esplanade voisine, Dundas Terrace fut achevée en 1890 selon les plans de W. C. Harris, architecte réputé de l'île et un maître de ce style.
