The American Brakeshoe Company Building was built in 1965 as part of a growing suburban industrial development trend in the City of Houston. It provided tenants with both light industrial manufacturing and office space. The building was part of the West Loop Industrial Park (now the Inner Loop Northwest Industrial Submarket), ideally placed for transportation near to the Eureka Junction and the confluence of two railroad lines and freeways. The first occupant was the American Brakeshoe Company, an automobile and railroad brake shoe manufacturer based in New York City.
