Apartment Building – Jennings

This two-story apartment building has brick-veneered walls and a flat roof. The building is distinguished by its carefully scaled front elevation consisting of a two-story gallery with brick base, slender columns and a delicate balustrade. The gallery projects forward at each end and flanks a central entry tucked beneath a cantilevered bay. The building was erected c. 1915 according to city directories; the design has been attributed to L. B. Weinman. The brick walls recently have been painted. More precise documentation and restoration could result in the building’s eligibility for the National Register as a well-designed early apartment building. This resource was designated Demolition Delay in 1995 but was subsequently demolished c. 2000.
