Significance: The Schwartz Building at 920 F Street, NW was designed in 1911 by local architect Samuel R. Turner, and is a significant example of the Federal Revival style popular in Washington commercial architecture at the beginning of the 20th century. The building illustrates the traditional building patterns associated with the late 19th and early 20th century commercial district in Washington. Designed with retail space on the ground level and offices above, the building continues to preset the mercantile image of the turn-of-the-century downtown.
