The Hydro-Ottawa Station on King-Edward was designed by the architect W.C. Beattie in the 1920s.  Despite the drastic changes that King-Edward went through, from an treed neighbourhood street to a highway style boulevard, the Hydro-Ottawa station remained almost exactly the same: only the main front door arc was removed.

The front lot was pushed back to accommodate the width of the new King-Edward.

The building is also much more isolated than it used to be now that the surrounding buildings are gone.
