Citizens Bank Building (SE corner of N. Miami Avenue and 14th Street)

The Citizens Bank of Miami was a product of Miami’s Boom era and had only recently been granted a charter when it broke ground for this building in early 1925. The appearance of the building serves as a visual reminder of Miami’s Boom years, when architects building in the young city were seeking a design identity through the utilization of accepted and nationally–recognized architectural styles.[i]
