    Significance Statement
    Based upon published photographs of this residence, it is an excellent example of Late Modern residential architecture with obvious references to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. However, it could not be evaluated because it is set deep on the lot and there is a gate across the driveway making it very difficult to see from the public right-of-way.

    Significance Statement
    This residence was constructed for NBA star, Wilt Chamberlain who played for the Lakers from 1968 to 1973. He is of exceptional significance in the history of sports. Chamberlain holds many NBA records and is widely considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of the sport. While most of his accomplishments on the court occurred before 1971, this residence is closely associated with his life in Los Angeles. The evaluation could not be completed because the property is not visible from the public right-of-way.
