Year Built: 1925
Architect/Builder: Robert A. Taylor/Sandquist and Snow

a. Historic photograph of the Salvation Army Citadel, circa 1949.

Although only a portion of this historic building survives as the entry portico to a modern office complex, the existing architectural details reveal this to be one of Miami's few examples of the Venetian Gothic subtype of the Gothic Revival style. The exterior stucco is scored to resemble stone, while the arch motif on the windows and arcade is reminiscent of the Doge's Palace in Venice. The Salvation Army constructed the building in response to the growing demand for religious and humanitarian services during the Land Boom era.
