This Art Deco building was completed in 1930. The architect was Claud Beelman; he is responsible also for a number of buildings from the same time period in downtown Los Angeles including the Eastern Columbia building. The building itself is a little plain but the lobby is quite formidable with black and purple marble with detailing in silver and gold leaf. The wrought iron entrance canopy and terrazzo sidewalk outside are also notable. The Garfield Building has been vacant since 1991.
