AbstractLocated at Hardesty and Independence Avenues, the General Services Administration buildings that once were used as an Army quartermaster depot during World War II and other various other federal agencies, have been unused for almost a decade. The portion for sale includes 18 acres and 7 buildings. "Some buildings in the complex were demolished, and two--a six-story building and a 12-story building--were sold in 1981 to self-storage business Megaspace Ltd." Potential buyer is Foundation Telecommunications Inc. of Rogers, Arkansas.
NotesNational Cloak & Suit Company occupied the 12-story building beginning in 1920. Around 1926, it changed the name to National Bellas Hess Company, Inc. They occupied the building until sometime around World War II.
