The Maytag Aircraft Building is significant as an exceptional example of Modern architecture in Colorado Springs. Contributing features include its folded plate roof, cantilevered walls, stacked, glazed brick wall cladding, tinted windows and use of an exterior courtyard as an integral part of the building. Designed by the local firm of Lusk and Wallace, the building is also historically significant for its association with the Maytag Aircraft Corporation of Lewis Maytag, Jr., serving as the company's headquarters from 1957 through at least 1982.
The company specialized in providing aircraft refueling services to the military, and maintenance and servicing of executive aircraft and the manufacture of aircraft parts. Currently it is used by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Colorado Springs, a non-profit advocating for victimized children. Despite being less than 50 years of age, the Maytag Aircraft Building is regarded as National Register eligible.
