Wayside Plaza Apartments – 9th

The 23-unit Wayside Plaza Apartments were described as “deluxe garden-type one room apartments” when constructed. The two-story building has a low-pitched hipped roof. The exterior walls are composed of a variety of materials including irregular coursed Austin stone and ornamental concrete blocks. Balconies are located on the second floor with patio areas underneath; the balconies and patios on the north and south elevations face outward and the ones on the east and west elevations face an interior courtyard. The original owners were Paul A Groves and Gus Cooley. No-Jo Construction erected the building designed by Kneer and Hamm. Upon the attainment of 50 years, it may be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places as an example of a mid-20th century apartment building.
