I'm looking for information about three of the CBD's smaller buildings. Historical information, past uses, and current uses would be very helpful. The below addresses are guesses.
The buildings are:
1. 1314 Washington Blvd. between The Clark Tower Lofts and The Archdiocese Offices/St. Aloysius Catholic Church. It's a two story building.
2. The triangular building at the intersection of Clifford and Griswold.
3. 1235 Washington Blvd. next to the Book Building/Tower. It's a two story building.

no. 2 is owned by my ex boss. He's a member of the golden ticket syndrome. It used to be a night club from what I hear its a pretty cool space. Before he bought it they shot some of the battle scenes from eight mile.

the triangular building on clifford and griswald, are you referring to the small synagogue next to D'Mongo's? If so, I have heard that it is the only conservative synagogue in downtown, and is only hanging on by a thread. According to my source to hold a service at such a synagogue, there must be 10 persons present. Even with the live in janitor, they only occasionally can come up with 10. It would be a cool house. - Andy

I wasn't aware that it was used for anything. (It's the building with the 30 and the for sale sign on it).
Thanks for the correction Pam. Now I know.

1. Washington Blvd in 1943:
2. 30 Clifford. Was a fire station a long time ago. I'm guessing the current building is not the original. In 1940 it was a restaurant called The Cow Shed. A few years later it was divided into a bar on the west side and an eyeglass store on the east side.
3. 1943 again:

Speaking of the Clark Tower Lofts, what's up with them? Weren't they temporary lofts for the SuperBowl?
