Another heritage restoration in Edmonton is nearly complete.

The Yorath Residence, located in the River Valley near Sir Wilfred Laurier Park, was constructed in 1949 and was designed by Alberta's preeminent modernist firm Rule, Wynn & Rule. Built for prominent businessman Dennis K. Yorath, it remained in the family until the passing of his widow in 1991. Sold to the City the following year, it sat largely abandoned for nearly two decades and was practically unnoticeable due to unkempt vegetation. Designated a Municipal Historic Resource on December 15, 2015, it has been slowly restored by the City over the last two years. It is now used as rentable event space.
