Central Avenue Clinic

301 Central Ave. - 1946


This asymetrical designed, reinforced concrete structure covered with stucco is one of the best examples of Streamline Moderne buildings in the city.  Streamline Moderne was one of the styles of the late Art Deco period.  The building has large areas of glass block that curve around the single and double corners at each end.  A tower with glass block and a flat canopy with a curved street edge mark the entry.  Dr. Riley Lenox built the building with Charles T. Freelove as the architect, and Fred E. Hess as structural engineer.
