HEATH'S BUILDINGS is a block of forty-six luxury suites in the heart of the city. Twenty-seven of these have been designed for professional use and nineteen for residential purposes. The suites contain from two to five rooms, and all the latest appliances and equipment in modern building construction have been employed.

The shops at street level are a very handsome feature of this imposing building. Lifts have been installed, and plenty of window space has been allowed in both residential and professional suites, built-in cupboards and bookcases are an asset in all the flats, and each flat contains its own bathroom and private sleeping porch.

A convenient innovation, particularly valuable to the professional quarters, is the arrangement for alternating and direct electric current.
