Rosenwald Building

The Rosenwald Building was designed by Trost & Trost as Albuquerque’s first Reinforced Concrete building, and was advertised as New Mexico’s first fireproof business structure. Erected in 1909-1910, it was built by Aron and Edward Rosenwald as an expansion of their Dry Goods business they had opened in 1878. The building is designed in a Chicago School, according to the Society of Architectural Historians, and stands today as an Albuquerque landmark and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
