The Oakland Floral Depot Building is a stunning deep blue terra cotta Art Deco building in the Uptown neighborhood. Although it was formerly occupied by a Floral company, it is currently the site of the Flora restaurant (and adjacent expanding bars, restaurants, etc.). The restaurant name was inspired by the building's history.
The building was constructed in 1931 for "several specialty shops, as well as a large restaurant to be operated by Peter Bolas." 1
