Hyde Park Towers

Hyde Park Towers

House history

Question: This apartment tower is fairly modern, but there is also an old section which was once part of a commercial property. Does that make it difficult to research its history?

Answer: Not necessarily. It might require finding out about more than one parcel of land in the original title records, but this is quite common, especially where large buildings straddle consolidated titles.
