The east side of the 1100 block of Fayetteville St. was exclusively residential until the 1950, when a medical office building was built at the southern end of the block. In 1923, 1109 housed Temple Buchanan; in 1938, 1109: Irvin H. Buchanan

By 1965, the residential structures in this block were demolished, and that land became part of the Fayette Place housing project. The alignment of Fayetteville St. was shifted to the west. 1111 Fayetteville St. was not demolished, however, and remains at the northeast corner of Fayetteville St. and Umstead St.
