Description
- Architect: Albert Kahn

- The building was constructed as the headquarters of the Kresge Company, the company that eventually became K-Mart, but they moved out of the building by 1930.

- This abandoned building underwent a renovation in 2004 transforming the former office building into a residential building with ground-floor retail.
