Completing our look at SW 6th between W Burnside and Ankeny is the Salvation Army Citadel, just to the south of the Arata Building (shown in the previous post), and across 6th from the Commonwealth Building (last Thursday’s post). Ankeny Street no longer goes through to 6th, it stops at 5th where it runs into Big Pink on this block.

A copy of Domestic Engineering dates this building to about 1922.
As a followup to yesterday’s post and discussion, today we look east across 6th Avenue from the Commonwealth Building. The Arata Building sat on the southeast corner of the intersection; the awning and diamond decorations can be seen in yesterday’s photo. Big Pink (US Bancorp Tower) is located here now.
