Terra cotta detail Entrance The Lindemann & Hoverson Company Showroom and Warehouse Building, located in the East Garfield Park neighborhood, is a handsome industrial/warehouse building designed by noted Chicago architect Paul Gerhardt, Sr. Its reinforced concrete structure is clad with a handsome pressed-brick and terra-cotta exterior. The building was constructed in 1924 for the Milwaukee-based A.J. Lindemann & H.C. Hoverson Company, which specialized in the manufacturing of heating devices and kitchen appliances. Gerhardt's career included designs for Cook County Hospital and Lane Tech High School. Today, the Lindemann & Hoverson Building is one of the few remaining, significant, early 20th-century industrial/warehouse buildings within East Garfield Park's industrial corridor.
