Arredondo gives Murphy building new lease on life

“It was once a great building, and we are going to make it great again,” commented Daniel Arredondo, about the Thos. D. Murphy Co. building on 110 S. 2nd St., in Red Oak.

Arredondo, who owns Designed Just Right investments and is a realtor with AR-Realty in West Des Moines, purchased the expansive four-story structure in a tax sale in 2017.

“I saw pictures of the building and thought, ‘Wow.’ The first time I came to the building, I couldn’t get in but I walked around and found it to be amazing,” Arrendondo said.
