The tobacco warehouse at 1103-1105 North Washington Street was built ca. 1875 and was used as a warehouse until ca. 1920. The building is the one of the earliest remaining industrial buildings in the district. It was first used by Becker Bros. until Gieske & Niemann assumed control of the building in ca. 1900. By 1914, Gieske & Niemann leased the second floor to the Chesapeake Tobacco Co. cigar factory. During the 1950s, the building was an upholstering shop; it is currently rented as artist studios (Sanborn 1890, 1901/02, 1914/15, 1953).
The two-story, gable-roofed, brick building rests slightly below grade. The building has a trapezoidal shape. It is 45’ wide. The north wall is 130’ deep while the south wall is 175’ deep. The front (west) elevation is divided into two bays. The first floor windows have segmental arches and sandstone sills. On the second floor, each recessed bay has a sandstone beltcourse and three Roman arch, one-over-one-over-one-light windows. The fluted piers between the windows are capped by imposts supporting corbelled arches. The gable end is clad with metal. Additional lighting is provided by segmental arched windows along the building’s south elevation.
