West End, Elliston Place and Division Street, built from 1900-1925
During the early twentieth century, West End and Elliston Place evolved into a desirable neighborhood with many residents choosing to live in upscale apartment buildings such as The Westboro (pictured). In recent years, several of these historic apartment buildings have been demolished for high-rises and redevelopment projects. The remaining apartment buildings have unique architectural features such as original hardwood floors, fireplaces, moldings, tile work and other elements that give them character that cannot be found in new buildings. These buildings also face development pressure.
