Our Firm’s History
Our building is a beautiful, warm home that was enjoyed by all kinds of people throughout the last century. Before 1889, the land where our building is situated, as most of what is known as Calgary, belonged to the railroad. It was owned by Richard B. Angus and then Matthew Gray, a shipbuilder. M. Ross Wallace built our building in 1909 and sold it to Mr. Hugh D. May. For the next forty years following 1909, our building had several owners and tenants.
In 1976, a small fire broke out and devastated the upper floors. Our building was vandalized during the repairs and the hand-carved wooden stair railings were ripped out and never found. New railings were installed and are still in the building today. Our building saw people from all walks of life as a rental property and, at one point during the late 1970s, a boarding house for men who were down and out.
In 1988, our building was leased to Lonny L. Balbi, a young, ambitious lawyer who launched his own law firm, Balbi & Company Legal Centre. He maintained the essence of its rich history and changed little about the building. He purchased the building a few years later in order to preserve its heritage.
In June of 2013, Calgary suffered a terrible flood. Many homes and businesses were demolished and our building’s basement area was a disaster. Files, desks, computers, and office supplies were destroyed. Many wills had to be rescued and dried out. Lonny Balbi saved and renovated the basement. From its stately yet homey roots, our building continues to be a warm and welcoming place for all who enter.
