In 2001, it was redeveloped by architect David Murray at the request of Alberta anthropologist Bob Doe. According to hullblock.com, its design features red brick and cast stone and is an example of the Edwardian Classical style used in the construction of many residential and commercial buildings in England and its colonies at the time.
