In 1917, architect O.C Uehling designed the Phoenix Knitting Co. Plant #4 to house Phoenix’s dyeing, washing, and knitting operations. Renovated and renamed the Phoenix Building in 1980, this seven story building is home to the Historic Third Ward Association, the Herzfeld Foundation, and the Penworthy Company. Numerous other businesses in the Phoenix Building include ad agencies, law firms, investment banking firms and more.

In September of 2013, Badger Investments (brothers Jim and Michael Swernoff) acquired the building from Phoenix Building, LLC (Weingrod family). They plan to add underground parking and upgrade the lobby.
