::  City National Bank Building
121 SE 1st Street
Year Built: 1925
Architects: Hampton and Ehmann
Date Designated: 1988

a. The 11-story City National Bank Building is noteworthy for both its classically-inspired commercial architecture and its associations with Miami's chaotic economy during the 1920s and 1930s. The Miami Bank and Trust Company began construction on the building, but the bank collapsed during the Bust of 1926. The J.C. Penney City National Bank and Trust Company took over the building as it was nearing completion. City National Bank failed during the Great Depression. The City National Bank Building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
