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).

Renovation of No 2507 began in 2021 and altered the appearance of the original façade. The original door was in the Federal style with lights in the paneled door and a fanlight on top with lights to either side. in 1983, a modern aluminum frame with asbestos shingle roof extended over a bay window, which has bee removed.
