San Francisco Historic Landmark #153; designed by Bernard Maybeck; a fine example of Maybeck's playful exaggeration of the Classical architectural vocabulary, seen also at the Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco; the colossal columns lend a surreal, overly dramatic element to the composition.

The building later housed a dealership selling British vehicles, such as Jaguar and Range Rover brands.
