E.M. Bush and F.M. White commissioned Los Angeles architect L.A. Smith to design a 10-story (plus basement) cold storage warehouse on their property at the "southwest corner of O'Farrell and Sepulveda Street.". L.A. Smith was preparing "revised plans" for the warehouse in 01/05/1930. At this time, Bush and White signed a 25-year lease (worth $2.5 million) with Mutual Income Properties, Incorporated, for its use of the 500,000-square-foot building. The warehouse, known as "Bush Terminal," was constructed of reinforced concrete and was to cost $1.2 million. (See "Bush Terminal Plans to Be Revised," Los Angeles Times, 01/05/1930, p. D2.) Roy Brown served as the Building Contractor for Bush Terminal.
