Description
Designed by Stiles O. Clements, this classic Streamline Moderne building was first occupied in 1938 by Coulter's Dry Goods. In the 1970s, the store changed hands and became a Broadway. After the building was demolished in 1980, the site remained vacant until the late-2000s, when a 5-story mixed-use structure was built.
