Adams, a prosperous commission merchant, engaged Richard Upjohn to design this investment property at the same time the architect was working on Adam’s own house (demolished in 1942) several blocks to the north. Like nearby Athenaeum Row, these units were rented to upper-income tenants, but, despite the hand of a master (and probably because of the budget restrictions), the building lacks the architectural distinction and street presence of that row.
