When this sizable facility went up at the corner of Westmoreland Ave and Beverly Blvd in Silver Lake it was touted by its owner as the "World's Most Beautiful Storage Building."  As much as I like it, there are lots of other places around the world, some of them centuries old, that could just as easily make that claim.  However, modesty has never gotten much traction in Los Angeles when it comes to commercial development.  Hyperbole wins the day.  The bas-relief faces embedded in the cornice above this doorway are a nice touch whatever the building's international standing.
