|Painting of Darlington Hotel|
by Lowell Thompson
The description on the permit reads, "De-conversion from existing 64 unit Class A-2 residential multiple dwellings - single room occupancy to a 48 unit Class A-2 residential multiple dwellings - apartment building.interior alterations, new electrical service & distribution, new plumbing service & distribution, new a/c units."
The building was sold by long-time owners, the Dolins family, in March of 2019 for $2,750,000.
According to property records, it was built in 1911. We're not sure if it was originally called the Darlington Hotel, but Polk's Street Directory from 1928 shows that the name was in use by that time.
