8320-28 Fountain Avenue

The three-story building located at 8320-8328 Fountain Avenue is constructed with French Chateauesque architectural features. The zigzag frontage, steep-hipped slate roof, Corinthian molding on the cornice line, corbel turrets, porticos, French doors and casement windows, triangular gables, decorative frieze panels, arched entries, quoins, and weather vanes define the building’s design. The building is an example of high-quality apartment buildings designed and constructed in the 1920’s and 1930’s presumably to appeal to members of the motion picture industry migrating to Hollywood from New York City.
