Front Entrance

Architecture, History, Location


A shot of what will be the front entrance for Blue Ion HQ….from an alley right off of Liberty Street. The old mural for Hart Schaffner Marx is pretty sweet. It’s peeling and in bad shape, so we’ll need to see what we do with it. Apparently, Hart Schaffner Marx is President Obama’s #1 suit brand…..at least according to the LA Times. That would make sense, as the company was founded in Chicago and is 100% American made.

We are working to dig up information on past tenants, owners, etc…so stay tuned for some historic posts.

    Come to find out that mural isn’t any older than 1980’s vintage. Still kind of cool looking.
