    Culled from Wikipedia:

    Halifax Apartments, originally known as the Cross Arms Apartments, is a historic apartment building in Hollywood. Designed by Walker and Eisen, the building was completed in 1923. The building was originally owned by Leach Cross, who named it the "Cross Arms Apartments." At the time of its opening, it was considered "one of the largest and most beautiful apartment houses in Hollywood." In October 1924, the building sold for $750,000, and the new owner renamed the building the "Halifax Apartments." In 1981, the Halifax was converted to Section 8 housing for senior citizens. As of 2008, it was being operated as low income housing. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
