A building boom that succeeded World War I resulted in the construction of large mixed-use buildings like the Logan in the city’s downtown core. The U-shaped building, constructed in 1918, contained a combination apartment/hotel on the upper levels with commercial space on the lower floors. Although the building appears as two separate structures from its primary façade because of the differing application of materials and ornamentation on the east and west sides, a matching roofline adds cohesion to the overall form. Early in the building’s history, the re-grading of Dodge Street, onto which it faces, impacted the design of the lower level and necessitated the renovation of the entranceways. Because of its location along one of the city’s busiest thoroughfares, the building remains a prominent fixture on the downtown streetscape today.
