March 2001


November 2008 - a vacant lot

1402, 1404 Washington

Architect: F.M. Levy, 1915

Slathered in unbecoming stucco, these two buildings were long tattered around the edges. Though home to several small businesses, they were demolished in 2007 to make way for a high-rise project called the Skyhouse. Skyhouse fell victim to the slowing economy, however, and the site remains vacant as of early 2009.
