​​The Baxter Building, alternatively known as the Blaschka Tower, is located at 106 South A Street, in downtown Harlingen. The building is currently quite decrepit, and the renovation will aid in revitalizing downtown Harlingen.HARLINGEN – After nearly two years, developers plan to launch the $4.3 million renovation of Harlingen’s tallest eyesore.

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs awarded developers MRE Capital more than $3 million in federal tax credits to help fund the renovation of the nine-story Baxter Building.

The developer plans to turn the building, located at 106 South A St., into a 24-unit apartment development largely made up of low-income units. 

As part of the project, they will restore the 1927 office building to its original condition.

Mayor Boswell has called the renovation project critical to the continued revitalization of the downtown area.
