Building History

The Los Angeles architectural firm of Morgan, Walls and Clements designed this building developed by the busy Hollywood real estate man, Charles E. Toberman (1880-1981). The firm had designed this Spanish Colonial high-rise storage tower by 11/30/1924, when a sketch of it appeared in the Los Angeles Times. The caption referred to it as a "Proposed Hollywood Storage Building." (See "Five Structures Planned," Los Angeles Times, 11/30/1924, p. E1 [section V, p. 1].) At this time, Morgan Walls and Clements was also designing the Wilshire Shop and Studio Apartments, 3rd Street Shops, and the Golden State Masonic Temple," each of which appeared in this Times article.
