In 1944, Tip-Top Bakery, part of a chain, replaced several houses at this corner. The building later served as a Columbus Dispatch newspaper distribution depot, marked with a German-language sign that served as a reminder of the area's heritage. In the 1980s, the building housed offices, and in 2009 condominiums were built on most of the site. A portion of the 1944 structure was kept and incorporated into the condominium project rather than be demolished. This is an excellent example of how a structure can be adapted over time to accomodate a variety of different uses.
