Sunset Grocery

If you are traveling west on I-10, one building that stands out in the Sunset Heights neighborhood is the Sunset Grocery.

The distinctive green and white color scheme make spotting the three story building from the freeway easy.  The bottom store is filled with various antiques and other items but does not appear to be a real store.   I “Googled” looking for any information about the building and came up empty with the exception of a dubious Facebook page. (Update 11/7/2012: I have come across a new Facebook Page that appears to be legitimate and is worth checking out for the history and other photos)

The painted signage that was once prominently displayed on the brick facade is almost completely faded away.  The building sits at a off square intersection, so its footprint is kind of unique, I don’t think there are any right angles.

The apartment entrances are in the back with a few parking spots so if you want your next rental home to be in a historic neighborhood you can give them a call.
