The federal government is auctioning the historic Windsor Manor apartment building, located at 409-411 E. Armour Boulevard.

The 94-year-old four-story brick building is offered by the government's General Services Administration. It has been vacant for about five years. The designer was notable architect Nelle Peters. The property is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. 

"The architech was very prolific in Kansas City, in the mid 20th century," Robinson said. "Because it's one of her properties, it's a big part of what makes it historic."

Peters was one of just a handful of women architects around the country in the 1920s. People who want to find out more about Windsor Manor can visit the GSA website.

The building has just under 25,000 square feet of living space. It has water damage on the third and fourth floors, and repairs have been made to the roof.

Inspection day is Feb. 13 at 11 a.m.    

A $25,000 bid deposit is required.
