Underwriters Exchange Building
Transformation to Streetcar Flats

About this Historical Preservation Project

The Underwriters Exchange Building, also known as the Association of Commerce Building, is a nine-story brick building designed by architects Rosman & Wierdsma and built by Robert L. Reisinger & Co. in 1923. The building was completed in 1924, and additions were completed in 1926.

The building was part of a nationwide trend of sprouting insurance exchange buildings, led by Chicago, Illinois, in 1912, San Francisco, California, in 1913, and followed by Des Moines, Iowa, and Boston, Massachusetts, in 1923. The idea was to have several insurance companies under one roof to separate the insurance industry’s interests.
