Peking Restaurant (Edmonds and Davenport)

-A A +A
Edmonds and Davenport
1869. 1300–1302 E. Cary St.

This urbane building at the corner complements the former corn and flour exchange across the street. Its arched windows, brick pilasters, and deep cornice make it one of the most architecturally ambitious buildings in the area and a standout in this neighborhood of simpler utilitarian vocabularies.
