    Significance Statement
    This is the Hammerman House designed by Richard Neutra. The building has experienced substantial alterations including conversion of an original overhang into a balcony and the addition of a third story penthouse. While the residence may be significant as an important work of Neutra it does not retain integrity and is therefore not eligible.
