The Classical Revival-style Hooker Apartments block is a four-story masonry apartment building that retains integrity of location, design, materials, setting, workmanship, feeling, and association. It meets National Register Criteria A and C, with a local level of significance. The period of significance begins with the building's construction in 1908 and ends in 1963, the standard 50-year cutoff for objectively establishing historical significance. As a fine example of the modern multifamily housing that was erected in Springfield's streetcar neighborhoods in the early 20th century, and as a well-preserved example of the work of Arsidas Albert Ostiguy, the Hooker Apartments block is significant in the areas of social history, community planning and development, and architecture.
