a. This sleek three-story commercial building is a striking example of the Art Deco style. The architect's use of Seminole Indian figures and oolitic limestone veneer gives the building a distinctive local flair. The Shrine Building was constructed as part of the Biscayne Boulevard Company's effort to develop Miami's new main thoroughfare as a major shopping area just outside of the downtown center.
