Thomas MacLaren was the architect for this 1897 building, erected as an early mixed-use building. Prominent residents, including Spencer Penrose, founder of the Broadmoor Hotel and the El Pomar Foundation, occupied apartments on the second floor. Storefronts housed a drugstore, grocery, china shop, tailor's shop and offices in 1910. MacLaren was also associated with the City Auditorium (231 East Kiowa Street), City Hall (107 North Nevada Avenue), the Knights of Columbus Building (25 West Kiowa Street), the Acacia Park Hotel (104 East Platte Avenue) and the Lennox (226 North Tejon Street).
Decorative brickwork ornaments the building, as well as second story oriel windows on the east and north facades and a projecting cornice with modillions. State Register eligible.
