1214 Washington Ave

Tober Building
Architect: Tom P. Barnett, 1918

This beautiful Gothic Revival gem was originally home to the Erker Optical Company. The storefront has been home to Mossa Center Incorporated, a high-end furniture store, since 2002, with gallery space above.

1216 Washington Ave

Architect: Hogg and Reid, contractor, first story, 1905; George Rand, contractor, upper stories, 1919

The much simpler brick building next door housed the Bogeda deli, a relatively early upscale retail pioneer in this stretch of Washington, which closed in 2001. After two years of vacancy, the Ritz on Washington opened in its place circa 2003. The space is empty again as of 2008.
