The WPA provided $200,000 for this Streamline Moderne structure. Its four-story, steel-frame and reinforced concrete shell is finished in glazed beige brick with concrete trim, subtle horizontal banding in the brick, and rounded corners. DCPA offices, voice laboratories, and studios now occupy the former police offices and jail.
