The structure was designed by the famed architecural firm Eames & Young. The building was prominent as part of the downtown garment district through the late 1930's. A couple of its famous business tenants over the years included Amatin's Book Store (for the sheer size and constant chaotic state) and Gus's Fashion and Shoes.
Renovated into residential lofts in late 1990's following adoption of tax credits by the Missouri legistature for developers. The Bogen is located at the intersection of Washington Avenue and Tucker (12th Street).
