Significance: This is a large three story corner commercial building, designed with Colonial Revival Style details in 1898 by prominent Denver architects Marean and Norton. The construction of the building at the three way intersection of Broadway, Sixteenth Street and Sixteenth Avenue caused considerable controversy as it blocked the vista up Sixteenth Street, the major business street, to the State Capitol Building. An early city plan had proposed cutting Sixteenth Street through this site to the Capitol. The demolition of this building and the implementation of that plan is still an issue in Denver.
