Regarding the building: "The Villa Riviera is an icon of the Long Beach skyline. Based loosely upon the style of 16-century French chateaux, the design combines elements from the Gothic and Renaissance periods. At 15 stories, the Villa Riviera was for many years one of the Southland's tallest buildings, second only to Los Angeles City Hall. It is prominently sited at the jucnture of two major streets, Alamitos Avenue and Ocean Blvd." Date built: 1929; Architect: Richard D. King (Ref.
