History of The LaSalle
Built in the late 1920’s by Gallup & Joy, this nine-story apartment building joined the Dulion as a stylish accommodation to a housing shortage at the end of the Roaring 20’s. Designed in a French Renaissance Revival style, the red brick building has a scored stucco facing on its lower and top stories and terra cotta medallions above the arched entries. The LaSalle’s architect, S. Scott Joy, was renowned for many of the homes he designed throughout Birmingham that were noted for their Prairie Style characteristics; by 1926 he had moved his practice to Chicago.
Throughout its 90-year history, The LaSalle has remained a thriving apartment community located in the heart of one of Birmingham’s most vibrant and historic entertainment districts.
