Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2270
Significance: The Maier Brewing Company warehouse is a commercial/industrial structure with architectural and historical significance as defined under criteria A and C of the National Register of Historic Places. The highly decorated, eclectic architectural style incorporates Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial design elements in an unusual triangular shape, due to the building's location on a triangular lot within the railroad right-of-way. Decorative design details in the stuccoed brick and tile structure, such as a crenellated parapet at the corner entrance, are unusual for a functional type building of this size and location. These features reflect the level of interest, during the 1920s, in reviving historical styles. With a high degree of integrity, the building provides a very strong statement of early 20th-century, small-scale industrial/commercial architecture, of the light manufacturing character of the area, and of the interrelationships among transportation, design, and commerce.
