8325 Riverside Drive East – Seaway Towers

From December 1964, an ad above for the Seaway Towers on Riverside Drive in the town of Riverside. At 12 stories, it was one of the first high rise apartments built along the waterfront in Riverside. I love the architect’s rendering with the big old car cruising up to it.

The building is situated on the site on an angle to maximize the amount of units with waterfront views.

Amazingly enough, the building appears almost the same as it did in the rendering, although I suspect interior renovations have stripped it of any of its mid-century charm. Anyone out there know anyone in the building? Is the pool still in operation?
