The Moorish Mansion apartments were constructed in 1929, designed by architect, Carl J. Bard. The apartments represent an array of Islamic revival traits pieced together on an asymmetrical facade. One of the most striking features is the copper onion domes on top of the large bay window. Pointed “ogee” arches surround the doorway and the dark stone facade is offset by brightly colored mosaic details. Today, the building is still in use for its original purpose as an apartment complex.
