The Munger Building

Munger Building, 1915-33 11th Avenue South, 1928, Miller & Martin.

The first of the Munger Realty Company's Art Deco buildings on the circle, it sets an urban standard with its two-storey corner pavilion and monumental arched entry, flanked along 11th Avenue South with a row of one-storey shops. The limestone face is characteristically decorated with sunk -relief patterns of chevrons, rosettes and stylized  botanical forms and a shallow fluting  of the pier masonry. The 1980s rehabilitation of this significant building inspired the ongoing revitalization of the entire area.
