About the property:
What is now known as the Peerless Building is actually comprised of five individual buildings. Located at 229 Westminster Street at the corner of Union, the two most prominent are the Callendar, McAuslan & Troup building designed by Walker & Gould and The William H. Low Estate building, designed by Martin & Hall. This cluster of buildings make up the entire block of Westminster between Eddy and Union Streets. This block was famous for housing the largest and most successful regional department stores until the 1980s when it closed its doors.
Today the Peerless Building has 97 apartments, an impressive central atrium that opens the large block of connected buildings up to natural light, and opaque glass panels on the atrium facing side of the units let in light from the center. The architects for the redesign were Durkee Brown Viverios & Werenfels.
