1928 1

The Aladdin Apartments were in a building at 3058 Fruitvale Avenue near School Street, constructed in 1928.

The building was constructed by builder J. P. Peppin, for owner Carl T. Petersen. The apartments featured Rip Van Winkle wall beds and Frigidaire electric refrigerators. 1

There was apparently an earlier building known as Aladdin Apartments c.1909 that was at 1st Ave. and E12th Street. 2

The location is now a gas station. It's unclear when the apartment building was demolished, but the address is still apartments in the 1969 streets directory. 3
