Architect John W. Reid, Jr., (1879-1968) designed this Spanish Colonial police station while he was City of Architect of San Francisco.

Reid created a text-book Spanish Colonial Revival Style design, possessing a Churrigueresque entryway with Solomonic columns, reja over the windows, stucco walls with contrasting trim work around windows and doors, and a Spanish tile roof. The profusion of detail around the main entryway was notably Spanish Baroque.

The Salvation Army appended Reid's two-floor former police station to a large, nondescript, one-story dormitory facility on the southwest corner of Shipley and 4th Streets. The station was attached via a covered walkway to the dorm.
