Survey number HABS AZ-73-43
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: This adobe structure was once connected to the apartment block (530-566 S. Eighth Avenue) on the corner of W. 17th Street and S. Eighth Avenue (a continuation of South Convent Avenue). These apartments, and those others facing S. Eighth and S. Convent Avenue, were all built by an Italian carpenter, Juan Pascale. The structure now has an Anglo-influenced gable roof, but was probably built with the traditional Sonoran flat roof. These apartments are the only structures now remaining on this section of W. 17th Street, creating an Early Transitional Sonoran streetscape with their transom windows, gable roof, and flush front.
