Appearance

This is a very long warehouse building. The northern portion has maintained more integrity. This portion of the building is characterized by fairly continuous loading dock along Occidental Avenue, topped by a long awning of metal and wood. Banks of clerestory windows in metal frames and paired in groups of four are set above this. This portion of the building also includes a raised second story portion, also characterized by a bank of windows on the Occidental Avenue fa├žade, as well as facing north and south. The southern portion of the building, a slightly later addition, has fewer openings. It does include many service doorways with new roll-down doors, new windows as well as storefront. It is also distinguished by many sawtooth skylights, which are noted on original plans.
