The Trestle Building was built in the late 1800s and is the longest continously operated Commercial Building in Colorado Springs. Originally built as a "Mercantile Warehouse" it was inhabited in 1900 by the Baxter-Kearns Mercantile Co. (wholesale grocers) located at 201-203 West Huerfrano St. (later changed to Colorado Ave.). The passing trains would stop and drop a loading ramp in the back of the building and off load goods. The building was built to parallel the railroad tracks yet keep both end walls square with the bridge. Warehouse space was its primary use over the first 80 years.
In the late 1970's the building was bought by Dusty and Gary Loo, with the help of local architect, Michael Collins. The building was converted to office and studio space (where Collins maintained an Architecture Studio for many years). Historic features of the building remain including the freight elevator cables, motors and pulleys. The "Trestles" out front were salvaged from a local grocery store. The Colorado Springs Sports Corp. owned the building for many years before it was turned into "Office Condos", the curent use.
