Saint Paul Rubber Company

(Lowertown Commons)

- 300 East Fourth Street (between Wall and Broadway) -
- 1905 -

Originally built for the Saint Paul Rubber Company, this building supported the tremendous weight of E. W. Honza Printing Company's presses and type for many years. Redevelopers found that rot and foundation settling had taken a toll by the mid 1980s. They had to rebuild nearly one-fourth of the structure to make it fit for reuse as apartments. A beautiful central atrium transforms former industrial space into desirable living space.
