The Vista del Arroyo hotel and bungalows once graced the Arroyo Seco near the Colorado Street Bridge. From 1943 to 1949, however, it served another purpose, and then two more after that!
If this building was a cat, it has already lived four of its nine lives. Can you name all four in order? (see answer below)
First Life: Vista del Arroyo hotel
Second Life: U.S. Army Hospital
Third Life: Federal Office Building
Fourth Life: U.S. Court of Appeals
Next Life: Emergency Shelter (during the Zombie Apocalypse)
