United Stove Company planning new building

This story was published by the Ypsilanti Daily Press on Saturday, December 12, 1936.

A new factory building costing $42,000 which will be erected by the United Stove Co. at the rear of its plant on Huron St. is the third addition to be built by the company this year. This brings a total of almost $100,000 spent by United Stove on new buildings here during the past six months.

The application granted Friday by the city specifies a building 29,000 feet square, to be located along the Lowell ST. line south of the Michigan Central Railroad tracks. The foundation wall will be of concrete, and the flooring of concrete and wood. Brick construction will be semi-fireproof.

Two other building permits were also signed by Fred Older, city engineer, Friday. One is for a two story building to be erected on Block No. 31, Grant St. by Ray L. Leever. A. B. Curtis was also granted a permit to build a 1 half story house at 905 Pleasant Drive in Woods subdivision.
