The starting bid for the three buildings together is $2,000,000.

Two of the buildings, the Kean and Hibbard, were bought by Triton Properties in 2013.

The Kean is an impressive art deco apartment tower designed by Charles Noble in 1931. (He also designed Lee Plaza and the Elwood Bar and Grill). The Hibbard was designed by Robert O. Derrick. Both the Kean and Hibbard are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
