Designed by the prestigious San Francico architectural firm Bakewell and Brown, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Redlands Railway Depot had an unusual nearly 300-foot long colonnade that served as a covered waiting space, screening an enclosed station building about one-third as long. Bakewell and Brown utilized columns with Doric capitals in the colonnade, They grouped the columns in pairs, a feature often associated with the Parisian Ecole des Beaux-Arts, a school at which both John Bakwell, Jr. and Arthur Brown, Jr., studied. Their choice of Classical vocabulary distinguished their depot from the many being built in the Mission Revival Style in Southern CA c. 1895-1915.

Building History

This was the first of two railroad stations designed by the San Francisco architecture firm of Bakewell and Brown for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (ATSF), the other erected in San Diego, CA, in 1914-1915. It operated from 1909 until 1970, and lay vacant for over three decades before it was rehabililtated into space for restaurants. After 2013, the restaurants Ocean Blue and the Sushi Zutto occupied the building in succession.
