About Global Rock Investments
A.B. Rogers built this building in 1906. The second floor was the family winter home while the main floor was a furniture store. They also had an undertaker business in the basement level. There apparently was a lift so coffins could be raised to the main floor and loaded onto a horse drawn hearse in the back lane.
The back lane is now a rental space that serves an attorney's office.
J.C. Penney Co. occupied the building from 1957 until the early 1970's. They bricked in windows, moved stairways and replaced the front wood framed store windows with aluminum.
The building then went through many enterprising businesses. There was a coffee shop for a time, then a pizza parlor and a sporting goods store. It was then a game room with laser tag and an antique store in the basement.
Global Rock Investments restored this wonderful property in 2004. Today, Vodka Street Bistro is on the main floor along with Out of the Blue Salon, Morales and Navarette Attorney's office and San Marcos Community Acupuncture Clinic. The basement is Taxi's BBQ and Bar. There are eight loft apartments on the second floor - three two bedroom and five one bedroom.
It was incredible restoring this beautiful building. With all the business entities in this property, it allows the building to be enjoyed by many.
