Significance: This is one of the earliest industrial buildings constructed at this site. Although about half of the original building is no longer standing, the original concrete frame and roof are intact. It was designed by Albert Kahn, with his brother Julius Kahn probably involved in its construction, through his Trussed Concrete Steel Company. It is an early example of a one-story reinforced-concrete factory building using extensive clerestory roof monitors to admit natural light.
