The historic Board of Education Administration Building was designed by Irwin T. Catherine and Jules A. Melidon, and constructed in 1932. The building design was selected by jury. Its style is a combination of Art Deco and Classical Revival. It was part of an early revitalization scheme for the city, which resulted in the building in Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
