DOWNTOWN. Built by silver mining millionaire Lewis Bradbury in 1893, this five-story building was designed as “futuristic,” and it was featured in the 1946 “D.O.A.” and 1982′s “Blade Runner.” Today it serves as an office building, but the beautiful, ornate wrought-iron railings, oak paneling, glazed and unglazed brick walls, marble and tile floors, two open-cage elevators, and a crowning atrium with a skylight remain as a testament to architect George Wyman’s work. The lobby level is open to visitors. Tours of the upper levels are available by appointment.
