Notes
Survey number HAER CA-174-A
Building/structure dates: 1950 initial construction
Significance: Building 1 was the corporate headquarters for the Hughes Aircraft Company for 35 years. Howard Hughes and his top level executives had their offices on the second floor, and decisions that impacted the national defense and the direction of technological advancement were made there. Its richly appointed hardwood interiors earned the building the nickname "Mahogany Row." The building functioned as a reception center for senior military officers and other visiting dignitaries, in addition to initially housing Customer Relations, the Legal Department, and Planning on the second floor, and Purchasing and Industrial Relations on the ground floor. Its modern design included a well-appointed lobby with a large oil painting of Howard Hughes next to his H-1 Racer, the plane in which he set the 1935 air speed record.
