Van Nuys Building - 1911 (Los Angeles, California)(Los Angeles, California)

Built in 1911 by the Isaac Newton Van Nuys (a noted banker and owner of much of the San Fernando Valley), the Van Nuys Building is an 11-story building in Classical style with Italianate details. The Times reported in 1911 that the magnificent new building would be “the city’s most expensive office building” at $1,250,000.[7] In the early 1980s, City redevelopment agencies spent $24.3 million to convert the Van Nuys Building into 299 units of housing for senior citizens and the handicapped.[8][9] The Van Nuys Building was designated a Historic Cultural Landmark (HCM #898) in 2007
