Notes
Survey number HABS DC-381
Building/structure dates: 1932
Significance: The building permit for the Brownley Building notes that when built in 1932, it received an award from the Architect's Advisory Council for "meeting exceptionally well the standards which should be maintained for private buildings in the National Capital." The design successfully relates to the traditional fabric of older buildings in the area. Through its ornamentation, the Brownley Building captures the visual variety typical of older,more traditional buildings and relates to the pedestrian scale of F Street.
