During the 1920s and 1930s, larger, more ambitious multi-family residences were developed in the northern and western portions of Santa Monica’s original township. One prominent example is the Mediterranean Revival-style Sovereign Apartments (1929, Kurt Meyer-Raden; City of Santa Monica Landmark #31) at 205 N. Washington Avenue.
