The Tudor Building
Originally: Wrought Iron Range Company
Architect: Albert Knell, 1925

Just west of the garment district is this lovely Tudor Revival building, stretching for an entire block and originally home to a stove manufacturing company. The ground floor was designed as rental retail space, with the company's display areas on the second floor.

By the 1990s, it gave an appearance of abandonment, with numerous storefront windows boarded over, but in fact has been at least partially occupied almost continuously by various tenants. In March 2004 it was sold to a new owner who renovated the building, restoring the old storefronts and converting the upper floor to residential use.
