Historic Westside SchooL
Las Vegas, Nevada
The Westside School campus was an important educational institution in the predominantly African American Westside neighborhood in Las Vegas. The two buildings on campus, a 1923 school designed by Los Angeles-based Allison & Allison and a 1948 annex designed by a local architect served as a both community center for the neighborhood until the school’s closure in 1967 and contributor to the property’s historical significance. The campus was listed in the National Register in 1979 and Chattel amended the National Register listing to include the 1948 annex in 2015.
Far East Cafe Building
Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, California
Working with the non-profit developer Little Tokyo Service Center Development Corporation, Chattel prepared the Historic Preservation Certification Application for the Far East Cafe building, a contributor to the First Street North National Historic Landmark District in Little Tokyo. The rehabilitation project involved conversion of a three-story mixed-use hotel, a single-story connector and a rear building into food service, institutional, and senior housing uses. The $3.7 million project used Historic and Low-Income Housing Tax Credits.
boyle heights, Los Angeles, California
The Boyle Hotel/Cummings Block is the last remaining commercial building from the early development of Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles in the 1880s. When the Boyle Hotel was constructed in 1889, it reflected expansion and growth outside the commercial core in Los Angeles and represents the end of the nineteenth century transition from a bucolic town to a burgeoning city center surrounded by suburban neighborhoods.
