Looking up at the southeast corner

Saw this weird old modern with an incredible sun breaker across the street from my dermatologist’s office in Arcadia: 75 N Santa Anita Ave.

Not a lot online but apparently designed by a local Arcadian architect named Richard K. Weimer. This building (early 1960s), perhaps once housed his office.

A post on loopnet advertises the whole complex as a tear-down.

A locked gate on the western side
Another view of the “self-shaded” brick wall on the western side (why were these so popular in Arcadia in the early 1960s?)
