Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 7, 1976):
This is one of the dwindling number of buildings by Louis Sullivan in the Midwest, done at the end of his career. It is a four-story steel frame skeleton, faced with brick, and has exuberant terra-cotta foliate ornament at the attic level.

The building is well maintained and all 19 apartment units have been rented. A drug store occupies the first floor. The successful rehabilitation of this key downtown building has received accolades from the State and Midwest Region.
