A designated Historic-Cultural Monument, The Business Block is quintessential Pacific Palisades – a neighborhood jewel nestled in the heart of this affluent community. As an active and elevated mixed-use property, it meets the needs of a relaxed clientele — the locals who depend on its convenience, and visitors in search of coastal California.

Palisades Business Block

Part of the original Olmsted development plan for the Pacific Palisades, The Business Block is a classic example of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, but with an unusual trapezoid shape. The two-story building – commissioned by Clinton Nourse in 1924 for the Santa Monica Land & Water Company in 1924, was designed to feel like a welcoming open-air market with shopping, dining, and plenty of pedestrian convenience.
