The Power Building



The Power Building was built in 1903 and designed by architect Harry Hake.  This 10-story building was once home to a textile firm.  In 1996, the building was no longer used as commercial space and in 2002 the building was redeveloped into apartments and is now called Renaissance Apartments at the Power Building.

The building is on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the East Manufacturing and Warehouse District, an area significant for late 19th and early 20th century manufacturing in the city.
