Moore Grocery Lofts (Moore Grocery Company Building)

-A A +A
c. 1912; 2008 renovated. 408 N. Broadway Ave.

The five-story buff brick commercial building displays a refined architectural composition. The first-floor brickwork is arranged in rusticated courses, forming a podium for the four-story-tall pilasters that join together under a corbeled brick cornice with segmental arches. Recessed triple windows and spandrels create a subdued horizontal counterpoint to the dominant verticals of the pilasters. The building was renovated as the centerpiece for an eighty-eight-unit apartment complex composed of three compatible buildings that are not attached to the Moore building.
