Fleetwood Square – 19611 Ventura Boulevard

19611 Ventura Boulevard, Tarzana

Just after this building’s completion in 1987, Texan-born architect, Lee Oakes, told the LA Times, “I was walking along Ocean Avenue and saw a ’70s Cadillac, and the proportions of the front were the same as the building.  So I began to think about Ventura–the cars, the asphalt, the neon–and the Cadillac just rang a bell.”  So, there you have it.
