About the Building

This grand commercial showroom was designed for the Paige Motor Company's dealership on San Francisco's Auto Row.

The street view is dominated by the large arched of the main floor. Sets of smaller windows provide light for the office stories above.

Ornamentation includes scroll-shaped brackets at the cornice and medallions in the arch spandrels.

In 2009, the building houses the offices of TRI Realty.

The Paige Motor Car Company Building is included in the National Register of Historic Places.
