- This 1936 tower and outdoor complex was designed by Robert V. Derrah. This place was built as an outdoor shopping mall, with a central Streamline Moderne tower and center piece with additional buildings in Frech Provicial, Tudor, and Spanish Colonial styles. Now the place is populated by small offices and no longer features many retail establishments. The central 55 foot town topped by a rotating model of the earth remains a popular and compelling landmark; the Art Deco cruise-boat accents remain stylish even today. Another building by Robert V. Derrah is the downtown Streamline Coca-Cola building.
