The sleek style of the Olympia Building marked a subtle transition in the urban architecture of the 1930s. Somewhere between the overriding revival styles of the previous generation and the glass-heavy International style that were gaining prominence, the simple elegance of this two-story office building is what sets it apart. Upon construction in 1935, the busy office building became a popular hangout for commuters and downtown visitors, who would linger at the streetcar station located in the front. A circular Coco-Cola signboard is perched atop the terrace of this building.
