Simovitz Building, Tampa, Fl.

This commercial building was constructed in 1909. The Simovitz Building originally housed a saloon and dry goods store. It is a 2-story brick structure that retains many original characteristics. The storefronts have been altered but the upper level remains virtually intact. The double-hung sash windows on that level are circle-headed; those on the south façade are open, but those on the west have been bricked up. Decorative brickwork and corbelling appear at the cornice. The stepped parapet bears a panel with the Simovitz name in it.
