2015 – Peter A. Abrametz Law Building
1000 - 1st Avenue West
Awarded to Owner: Peter A. Abrametz
This two-story brick building located at 1000 - 1st Avenue West originally housed the Imperial Bank of Canada and was built in the early 1900s. This old Imperial Bank of Canada Building illustrates the historical value the banking industry served the community in the 1900s in what was the financial district of the day. Its soft red brick structure, large arched windows and entranceway, and elaborate cornice is indicative of the materials used during this construction period.
Mr. Abrametz has show relentless dedication to restoring this historic building. The beautiful cornice has been repaired to its original glory and has been stabilized for safety. The arched windows were implemented into the rehabilitation work. Cracks and damaged mortar were replaced. New paint was applied to protect the integrity of the building, and new lighting and a new front door were installed. It has received great response from all who have seen the work completed to this historical building.
The City of Prince Albert is proud to present the 2015 Prince Albert Municipal Heritage Award to Mr. Peter A. Abrametz for the rehabilitation of the Peter A. Abrametz Law Building located at 1000 - 1st Avenue West.
