Two-building complex currently used as a warehouse facility. The bigger building contains 184,843 sq-ft of space, the smaller one includes 8,336 sq-ft of space. Both were built in 1915.

The complex would be renamed Welford Sanders Historic Lofts under a proposed development that would convert it to 58 apartments and 30,000 sq-ft of office space. Sanders passed away in 2015. He was the head of theĀ Martin Luther King Economic Development Corp.

The development is contingent on the project developer receiving low-income housing tax credits, which are to be awarded in September of 2015. The proposal would include 47 apartments rented at below-market rates and 11 at market-rates. In addition, 53,000 square-feet of space would be removed from the building to create a courtyard space, and 60 parking spaces would be built on the lower level.

The proposed office space would be rented to a number of firms already in the building, including Project Return, Step Industries Inc, Milwaukee JobsWork and the Alma Center. In addition, the ACRE (Associates in Commercial Real Estate) would move to the complex as part of the redevelopment.

The building has changed hands a number of times in recent years, with Milwaukee Area Technical College buying the building in 1985 and operating it as a small business incubator (Milwaukee Enterprise Center North). MATC sold the property in 2011. That group attempted to redevelop the buildings into apartments, but that fell through. They sold it in 2013 to Mercy Foundation Group Inc. of Florida. Florida sold the building on December 31st, 2014 to Sunset Investors, which is working with Wisconsin Redevelopment LLC and the Martin Luther King Economic Development Corp.

The proposed project marks the fifth phase of the King Drive Commons project.
