Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-73-30
Building/structure dates: 184 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1920 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1910 subsequent work
Significance: This row of apartments is made up of two separate buildings, one built prior to 1900, and an addition to the south wing built between 1920-1925. The earlier portion displays the recessed doors and windows common to Sonoran structures, while the doors and windows of the later addition are set flush with the face of the wall, in the Anglo tradition. This row of apartments bears a resemblance to the others lining the same block facing W. Kennedy Street and South 8th Avenue (continuation of S. Convent Ave.), built by the same person, Juan Pascale. The remnants of a toldo (an overhanging porch or awning) are still attached to the earlier structure.
