    This building is representative of the early 20th century commercial construction in Colorado Springs. Originally constructed as a livery barn sometime around 1903, it later served as a car dealership and repair shop, grocery, commercial laundry and now is used for bicycle sales and repairs. A simple Commercial style, it features a bow and truss roof with a parapet on both the front and rear. Contrasting colors of glazed brick and a terra cotta inset, with multi-light clerestory windows contribute to the attractive nature of the building. Locally significant.
