National Biscuit Company Building
This former industrial building remains a prominent landmark in the neighborhood and serves as a reminder to an important period of economic growth in Houston. It was built in 1910 by the National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco) to be the company's southwestern regional headquarters. It was one of the first warehouses in the city to be constructed using complete steel framing, including trusses, foregoing the use of large wooden beams. The building, which been converted into residential lofts, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
