286. (former) Great A & P Tea Company Grocery (FY 1001)
1000 Brookstown Avenue
Contributing, ca. 1918

The Home Real Estate and Investment Company purchased this property in 1917 and has retained ownership to the present. The two-story brick building is one of the most interesting commercial structures in the West End. The first story has a recessed corner entrance and has been covered with formstone (probably in the mid-twentieth century), providing the building with an unusual visual and textural quality. The common bond brick second story retains its segmental-arched windows and simple parapeted cornice.


The building was originally used as an A & P grocery.
