Town Center East is a two-building apartment complex built 1960-1961 within the much larger -Town Center Plaza- mixed-use superblock. The twin, nine-story buildings and their sites are mirrored by those of -Town Center West-, erected 1961-1962 on 6th Street, three blocks to the west and at the opposite edge of the original development plan. The two complexes flanked a retail center around what is now 4th Street. The north end of the Town Center Plaza superblock also includes two churches and a public library along the south side of I Street.
