This building, designed
as a warehouse and offices, with one and two story spaces within the same
height, is located on the northeast corner of Denver Avenue South and Lucile
St. The building is trapezoidal in plan. One of its main elevations, the only
one which is not set at a right angle, faces south along Lucile Street, while
the north elevation is also of some interest. A more minor elevation faces west
on Denver Avenue South. Exterior walls are of concrete block. The building has
a flat roof and a parapet.
The Lucile Street
elevation presents two stories and corresponds to the building’s office wing,
while everything else behind it was originally designed as warehouse space.
Engaged two story pilasters mark the bay divisions on the façade, although
several of the bays actually have no openings. After the first bay to the west,
which has no openings, the following four bays have glazing at two levels,
while the remaining three bays also have no openings. At both levels, each of
the bays typically has a row of five windows set in aluminum frames. The second
and fourth windows usually include smaller, operable awning style windows,
below fixed panes. In a few cases, the glazing seems to have been replaced, but
generally, the original glazing seems to have been retained.
Moving around the
building, the west facing Denver Avenue South elevation has one service entry
above a loading dock. Two engaged pilasters are set to each side of the service
entry, marking three bays. Other than the above, there is little other detail.
The north elevation has
more detail, although it is probably considered a back elevation. Full height
pilasters, similar to those seen on the previous elevations, mark six bays on
this elevation. The first bay on the western side of the elevation has a
regular sized exterior door. The next two bays each feature a service entry
with metal door and surmounted by a transom, divided into five panes. The next
two bays have no service openings, but include similar transoms. Completing the
elevation, the last bay has no openings.
Based on original
drawings, the south Lucile Street and north elevations, in addition to the very
simple Denver Avenue South elevation, have changed little since their
