After decades of lying discreetly in Downtown Tyler's shadows, the People's Petroleum Building (formerly known as Old People's Bank Building)has undergone a major revitalization, returning the timeworn structure to its earlier glory. Tylerite investors Garnett Brookshire, his father Tim Brookshire and Andy Bergfeld were diligent in working to preserve the Art Deco essence and historical integrity of this magnificent landmark while emphasizing the use of local contractors and resources. Their goal was to incorporate all the conveniences of a modern, upscale office building while retaining its historical character.

The owners engaged L2 Marketing to provide marketing materials and spearhead promotional efforts. Bergfeld Realty is the leasing agent and provides the experienced leadership required to restore the importance of this downtown icon.

Because customer service and satisfaction are such deeply-held principles of operation, the Brookshire’s maintain their offices in the People’s Petroleum Business. The Brookshire and Bergfeld families have a long history in Tyler, having built successful businesses and both remain involved in community development.
