Summary for 2137 2nd AVE / Parcel ID 1977200696 / Inv #

Historic Name: Supreme Laundry Common Name: Zoe's
Style: Commercial Neighborhood: Belltown
Built By: Year Built: 1927
This two-story brick building was built in 1927 and, in 1937, housed the Supreme Laundry and Valet Cleaners & Dyers. It was later converted to office and retail use, and is now a restaurant. In 1965 it was covered with stucco. In recent years it has been rehabilitated to something close to its original appearance, although it looks better than it did originally.
This two-story building is of solid brick construction, clad with red brick. There is little ornamentation except for projecting pilasters separating the window bays and a prominent cornice. Windows on the second story are one-over-one double-hung, in groups of three. There are new entries at the north and south ends of the main fa├žade, and large display windows with transoms.
