Designed in 1903 by architect A. L. Haley, the Touraine Apartment's columned facade stood three stories high, while the rear of the structure was eight stories, sloping with the natural terrain of Bunker Hill. This neoclassical building located at 457 S. Hope in Los Angeles was demolished in the mid 1960's as part of the area redevelopment.
