Property Overview

It sits on the northwest corner of the Milwaukee/Diversey/Kimball intersection. A local entrepreneur built it in 1930. He dubbed it, “a hair pin with a hump.” The building known as the “hump building” maintains that name today due to the camel insignia found on the building’s exterior and entry lobby floor. The building transitioned through different owners over the years.
