Merritt Building

OKB Architecture
"The 10-story Merritt Building was completed in 1915 at the corner of 8th St and Broadway after a 23-story “skyscraper” proposal was squashed by City Council. Hulett C. Merritt wanted to create a monument to his family. The building was constructed with white Colorado Mule marble, the same as the Lincoln Memorial, inside and out making it the tallest building in the world at the time with such treatment. The building is part of the revitalization of Broadway as the center of Los Angeles with the likes of many international retail and restaurant brands setting roots. The exterior is being restored to its original design while the interior is being renovated to reflect original uses with retail at the street and creative office above with a rooftop deck." - SOURCE: OKB ARCHITECTURE
