Grace Lofts
Originally: Lesan-Gould Building
Architect: Mauran, Russell & Garden, 1907

The Lesan-Gould Building features a very visibly exposed concrete structure on its broad faces, with Craftsman decorative elements on the street and alley faces. Its construction was fireproof, reflecting its original role as home to an advertising and printing company.

Largely vacant since the early 1990s, its last tenant for a decade or so was a dance club. After years of exposure and deterioration, it was converted into loft condominums, and now known as Grace Lofts.
