Firm: Clayton Bond and Mogridge

Address: 512 6 Street SW

Date of final plans: April 1958

Status: standing as built

The Shelbourne Building was one of two two-storey offices built concurrently by Mire Katchen and designed by CB&M. The plans for the Shelbourne were finished in April 1958, and the plans for its companion, the Telchen Building, were finished in March 1958. The naming is a bit confusing. The Telchen was built for a company called "Shekat Holdings" (Shelbourne-Katchen?), while the Shelbourne was built for a company called "Shelbourne Holdings." By the early 1960s, Katchen's affairs seemed to have been consolidated into a company called Telchen Holdings, from which the other building got its name.

The Shelbourne Building is a small office building facing 6 Street in the west section of downtown. The building has a 65' façade and is 50' deep. The facade consists of five equal bays.
