This stately residential row resulted from the speculative activities of a syndicate headed by James Greenleaf. The complex was named for John Wheat, an early owner-occupant.
Now restored and integrated into the Harbour Square complex, the three-story brick row is articulated by a central pavilion of four bays, flanked by four-bay sections. An oculus window punctuates the pediment at the roofline above the central pavilion. Brick string-courses and a heavy cornice reinforce the horizontality of the composition. The windows are crowned with stone lintels with keystones, while the doors are finished with arched lintels over elegant fanlights.
