Like Frederick Manson White's Hotel Vintage Plaza, this is
a handsome and energetic building. It has a Romanesque flavor, a red brick face, and some nice capital carvings, as well as interesting arches and decorations that vary from one story to the next. The terra-cotta friezes below the strongly projecting cornice give it an extra flair, as does the botanical theme one sees throughout. The arched windows on the fourth floor have their own columns with terra-cotta capitals, a nice touch.
This used to be party central: the building was originally designed for a wholesale liquor company on the first floor, and the second floor was a dance hall. The rest of the building was a concert hall until the space was remodeled into apartments.
