287. (former) West End Apartments (FY 1002)
SW side Brookstown Avenue between 1000 & 1008 Brookstown
Contributing, ca. 1924
Even with its post 1950 alterations (first story doors and windows and removal of upper story balconies), this remains one of the most interesting of the commercial buildings in the West End. The three-story, six-bay-wide masonry structure has a brick veneer facade with a fancy cornice of patterned brickwork and a central brick open circle, half of which projects above the cornice. Doorways on both second and third stories appear to have opened to balconies.
The building was originally used as the West End Apartments, but has had a series of owners and is now used as a storage facility. (CD, TR, I-J. w. Tatum)
