The Martin Biscuit Building is a 2-story, 53,776 square foot brick commercial building located on the southeast corner of 2nd Avenue South at 29th Street. The original building was constructed in 1928 as a bakery for the Martin Biscuit Company. It was later expanded to the east with a slightly larger, but also slightly shorter addition.

The company closed in 1948. The vacant building was purchased for $500,000 by Sloss Real Estate in 1999 and renovated as part of their Pepper Place district in the early 2000s. Goodwyn, Mills & Cawood designed renovations. The $5,226,226 redevelopment cost was offset by a 20% federal Historic Preservation Tax Credit.
