Overview

Los Angeles architect Arthur E. Harvey () designed this seven-story office building to house a lucrative segment of the office space market, that for doctors, dentists and other high-earning professionals. This building type became increasingly common on the Pacific Coast at this time. Harvey utilized a Y-shaped or hensfoot flooorplan for the Santa Monica Professional Building to enable the maximum of light and air to enter each office.

Alteration

Plans were underway c. 2015 to transform the Santa Monica Professional Building into a hotel.
