Le Linton was designed by Samuel Arnold Finley and David Jerome Spence. Its construction began in 1907 and the building was completed in 1908.

HistoryEdit

Montreal's largest apartment building upon completion, the Linton appealed to well-to-do tenants as a substitute for a large house requiring servants, which were becoming increasingly difficult to find, at the time. The building offered such services as a dry cleaner and caterer, and featured such then-modern amenities as an elevator, central heating, electric doorbell, telephone switchboard and dumbwaiter.[2]
