999 VAN NESS AVENUE, SF

999 VAN NESS AVENUE

Cadillac Showroom

 

from sfgov.org: "A rare and outstanding example of a Moderne auto showroom. The building, with its curving corners, powerful horizontal articulation in its sweeping upper-level solid and glass bands, and eccentric piers and pylons, appears to float above a glass base. Evidence suggests that this is the last of auto showrooms expressly built for that purpose on Van Ness."
