C. K. Smithley, architect.
This building, aside from the way it blends structure and nature, the architecture is a combination of early California Spanish and early Los Angeles American, making it quite unique. (Source: Request for H. C. M. status, 03/30/87)
The Monterey Apartments is the second oldest deluxe court in Los Angeles.
One of a rapidly vanishing breed. With Los Angeles having lost most of its culturally vital structures, it would be a shame to see another go, particularly with the surrounding trees. Built in 1925 and can be seen as a valid attempt to energize regional building precedents as organizational and stylistic types. It opened the way for the creation of the accomplished courts of the late 20’s and still remains a vital place to live.
