Regarding Fred Vogel Jr. Building. Architect C.F. Ringer designed the Fred Vogel Jr. Building in 1896. Vogel, a tanning industry mogul in Milwaukee, then leased the building to Beals & Torrey, a manufacturer and distributor of rubber and leather footwear, who occupied the space for 25 years. Renovated in 1992, the building now accommodates a mixture of businesses such as YamaYoga, the Tom Queoff Sculpture Studio and other service businesses.
