The Beaconsfield is a more than a century old eight-story apartment building located across from the second SkyHouse on Main, which is currently nearing completion. According to one of several plaques at the entrance on Main, the historic structure was built in 1909 and renovated in 1977. Not all sources concur on the age of this historic building. See wiki page. HCAD records reflect 1911 as the year of construction and varying years for unit-specific remodels. The Beaconsfield is now a residential condo property.
