What’s the deal with this building on Chavez with a diagonal facade for no reason? Bernalwood figured it out.
Yesterday’s blog post about an 1888 photograph of the intersection of Mission and Army (Cesar Chavez Blvd.) generated a lot of great comments… including a very geeky digression about the apartment building at 3365 Chavez, right next door to the Principality of Chicken John.
You can see the building above; it’s set back from the street, with an unusual, angled facade. The oddness is even more obvious from above.
So what’s the deal? Read on for the answer.
