Historic Properties of Spokane
While the Ammann is not as elaborate as the other apartment buildings designed by architect Albert Held (Breslin, Knickerbocker, San Marco), it was one of the first and is clearly representative of the architect’s style. Held’s apartment buildings are listed on the National Register collectively in a multiple property nomination. Handsome in its simplicity, the Amman is located along historic Riverside Avenue, one of the first areas where apartments were built in Spokane. The building is well-maintained and is presently used as an office building.
