Biographical / Historical

Architects Morgan and Dillon with Walter T. Downing constructed the Healey Building from 1913-1914 as a commercial space before World War I. The Healey Building remained in the Healey family until 1972, when it was sold to Edward Elson and Morris Abram. In 1977, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places. In 1981, German entrepreneur Guenter Kaussen purchased the structure. By 1985, only sixteen percent of the office space remained in use and the building was bought from Kaussen's estate for by Healey Building Associates Ltd., a joint venture by the Dutch firm of Euram Resources and the Dutch bank Staal Bankers, N.V. In 1987, the Healey Building underwent an almost $12 million renovation under the direction of the architectural firm of Stang and Newdow, Inc. In 2001, the upper floors were converted into condominiums, while the lower floors operated as galleries, shops, and restaurants.
