Constructed in 1917 the Clemens Automobile building was designed as storage and show room space for the Clemens brothers growing automotive business.  The reinforced concrete structure with brown brick façade reflects the building styles of the early 20th century.  Key elements in this building are the simple terra-cotta decorations used in the trim and the large three section windows.


Clemens building is designed as a mixed use project with restaurant space on the first floor and high end private apartments on the remaining floors.  The unit mix will include 1 and 2 bedroom units.  Several units on the ground floor and all of the units on the roof are designed to be two story, townhouse style units.

Amenities include roof top patio and tenant club house space available for private party reservation.  In unit laundry and on-floor storage space will be available for each unit.
