Building History

The New York architectural tandem of Schultze and Weaver designed the Beaux Arts Revival office tower at 650 South Spring Street.

By 1937, at least, the Bank of America National Trust and Savings Association occupied the building as a banking center. It was known as the "Bank of America Building" in 1937, and the office portion of the building had an address of 650 South Spring Street. The banking operation had an address of 660 South Spring. W.J. Braunschweiger was the Bank of America Vice-President and Manager of this office in 1937. Other vice-presidents of this office included W.E. Benz, L.L. Mulit, Edmund Nelson, R.L. Rehorn, E.I. Vaughan and R.M. Watson. (SeeLos Angeles A-L, California, City Directory, 1937, p. 181.)


This former office building was converted to rental apartments and renamed "SB Spring."
