United Way Offices–Virginia Federal Savings and Loan Company

-A A +A
1964, Cuneen Company. 224 E. Broad St.

This is a period piece, very much in what Philip Johnson and others bave called the “modern ballet school” mode, characterized by grilles of metal or brick, which was popularized by Minoru Yamasaki and Edward Durrell Stone in the 1950s. Robert Winthrop, in his Architecture in Downtown Richmond (1982), praises it as retaining “its sharp crispness.”
