At 9 stories, the tallest building in Dubuque and the former home of the Roshek Brothers Department Store
Roshek management elected to move to a smaller location in the Kennedy Mall, west of town, in the 1960s with the new store opening in 1970. The family sold the company to Gambles-Skogmo, Inc. and the store subsequently closed in 1982.
This building, meanwhile, became an office building after the store moved out, and for the most part, was known as the Dubuque Building. Today, it is known as the Roshek Building, and houses offices for IBM, a restaurant and several retail operations. On some official drawings from the City of Dubuque, it is still listed as the Dubuque Building.
The distinctive canopies and grand entrance ways exist as they did in the heyday of the Roshek Brothers Department Store. It was added to the NRHP on March 17, 2010.
