Medical Arts Building

-A A +A
1928, J. N. MacCammon. 900 Austin Ave.

This multistory buff brick building became part of a trend to provide medical offices in the central business district in many Texas cities in the 1920s. Designed by Dallas architect MacCammon, the structure is typical of this building type where spatial attention was on efficient use rather than creating a notable architectural statement. It is, however, a rare survivor as it is still in use for medical offices.
