Building History

Architect Willis J. Polk (1867-1924) designed this three-floor apartment house in 1910 for Mrs. Eleanor Martin. It was reported in a building industry trade publication in early 1911: "Architect Willis Polk, Merchants' Exchange Building, has completed the plans and will award the contracts for the construction of a three-story reinforced concrete structure within a few days. The building is to be erected at the corner of Market and Rose streets and is to be built for Mrs. Eleanor Martin. The main floor will be occupied by stores and the upper two floors will be subdivided into living rooms. The cost of the work is estimated at $70,000. Work will be started as soon as the contracts can be awarded." (See "Among the Architects,Building and Industrial News, vol. 11, no. 1, 01/07/1911, p. 4.)
