Schwab's Sign

I read recently that the Schwab's sign is an exact replica of the sign that was on the Sunset Blvd. Schwab's Drugs. When the rehab'd building opened, a restaurant went in named Schwab's, in honor of the famous drug store, and that's why they had the sign recreated.

According to the article the restaurant was pricey, the food so-so and the service terrible, so it only lasted a little over a year. There is a controversy brewing right now over the fate of the sign.

That all aside, that is a wonderful building and I love that they integrated so much of the original design asthetic into the re-development project.
