"This is one BEAR DEN you won't mind visiting. Come enjoy this cozy and comforting space after an exciting day exploring Waco's Bear Country.
Location is everything! We are just about 1.5 miles from Baylor University, three blocks from Magnolia, and six blocks from the new sports complex (Foster Pavilion). Our guests staying in this building often walk to the games at McLane Stadium, which is 1.5 miles away. Additionally, we are conveniently situated next door to Fable Bookstore and Cafe. Fable and the Behrens Lofts are actually adjoining buildings.
Our condo is located on South Fourth Street & Mary St in downtown Waco, Texas. The Behrens Lofts now occupy what was once known as the Behrens Drug Company building. The structure was completed in 1913 and served as the headquarters for the Behrens Drug Company. It was constructed as a fire-proof, concrete structure with an emphasis on ample working space and employee safety. As a testament to its significance in Waco's history, Behrens survived the 1953 Waco tornado with little damage. In 1990, the fifth, sixth, and seventh floors were added as the building was converted to loft living spaces.
Guests will have access to the entire condo except for one locked closet."
