Description

Built in 1949 from a 1940 design by architect William K. Noppe, the Beach Town House Apartments building is important for its historic, cultural and aesthetic aspects. In particular, it represents the beginning of the post-World War II transformation of the West End from single family/rooming houses and walk-ups to the mid- and high-rise precinct developed in the 1960s.
