The architect for this building is unknown and the General Contractor is believed to be Butcher & Sweeney, but the building has been incorporated into the Sanger Lofts Project. Currently the building has retail on the ground floor and loft apartments on the upper two floors. Access into the apartments is from the Sanger Building, next door. Originally, this building was built for the J.C. Penney Co., it was later occupied by Fakes Furniture.  After Fakes closed, Edison's used the upper floors.  The building is now a part of Sundance Square.
