Gaggin and Gaggin were in the process of designing commercial building and assembly hall for the Syracuse Masonic Temple Corporation. The building consisted of two sections, one 5-stories in height, measuring 100x66 feet, and a two-story portion, measuring 40x55. William F. Canough was the president of the Masonic building committee. (See "Syracuse, N.Y.,"The American Contractor, 05/30/1915, p. 40.)Construction began on the Masonic Temple on 11/04/1915, and completed 15 months later in 02/1917. The Masons occupied the building until 1985, when it became the Metropolitan School for the Arts. It was later converted to house apartments, and became known as the Masonic Loft Apartments.
