WACO - The five-story building at 216 S. Sixth St. once employed hundreds of people to make military uniforms and Gene Autry blue jeans. Soon, the hulking 98-year-old historic building will become luxury lofts — Altura Lofts.
The loft condos will sell for between $250,000 and $415,000 each.
“This building is by far our favorite building, as far as doing lofts,” Shane Turner said. “It’s 100 percent concrete inside, with great views of the Baylor campus, the river and downtown.”
A car entrance will be built for access to the basement level, which will become parking for 25 cars.
The partnership includes Bicycle World owner Todd Behringer and downtown developers Shane and Cody Turner.
Built in 1917 as headquarters and warehouse for Waco Dry Goods Co., it is the last of the giant downtown warehouses to be renovated.
