    This building is representative of the multi-purpose commercial blocks erected in downtown Colorado Springs during the early twentieth century. The architect and original owner are unknown, although the building was constructed in 1900 and reflects Late Victorian architectural influences. The building has housed a diverse number of businesses on both floors, as well as having a public meeting space which in 1910 was listed as the Workers of the World Hall, and a lodge hall on the upper floor, which provided facilities for the Elks Club in the 1950's. In the 1960's a new owner of the building renovated the structure to contain ten stores on the ground floor and 20 offices upstairs.

    The north wall of the building has a series of tall, narrow windows with round arched transoms, gauged brick lintels, interlocking molding and painted stone sills. Near the center is a set of paired windows surmounted by a fanlight transom. The west wall steps down toward the rear of the building, and windows on the upper story are segmental arched, with gauge brick lintels and stone sills. Locally significant.
