"Four Office Buildings Will Go Up on Howe

Construction is ready to start at 1321 Howe Avenue on the first of four professional office buildings to be owned by R.W. Brandley.


Architect Carter Sparks, designer of the buildings, said each will have two floors and will be 40 feet wide and 300 feet long. The buildings will be wood frame, glass and concrete block construction and air conditioned.

Courts between the structure will be landscaped and the major off- street parking facilities will be on the sides and rear of the development.

The Erickson Construction Company will erect the contemporary style structures.

A building materials testing laboratory operated by Brandley will occupy space in one of the office buildings. The names of other occupants will be announced later."
