Nos. 2503-2507 were designed in 1892 by Thomas Francis Jr. and built by George W. Dove for T.B. Harrison. They feature large projecting bays and a strong vertical brick cornice. No. 2507 is currently being extensively renovated, while keeping the façade (more or less) – the one next to it (No. 2505) is in dire need of renovation (as of January 2023).
No. 2505 has a long double-hung window above the door in 1982 (in place of the oculus at No. 2503). A metal hood supported by brackets appears over the front door. (EHT Traceries) The house has been in poor conditions since before 2020 - its windows and doors are currently boarded up and the house continues to deteriorate.
