Built from 1938-40, the Art Deco style Model Tobacco Building is the primary six-story building of a six building collection of buildings comprising a former tobacco factory. Located at 1100 Jefferson Davis Highway (U.S. Route 1), in Richmond, Virginia, the building was designed by the Chicago architecture firm of Schmidt, Garden and Erikson and is known for the 9' tall Moderne MODEL TOBACCO letters which dominate the north end of the building.
It is one of many Art Deco buildings in Richmond, including assorted buildings on Grace Street
Currently the building houses approximately 3.5 acres of used cubicle partitions and other miscellaneous office furniture. It also is the site of Russ Parsons' famous collection of "hot dog cars," rumored in certain circles to be worth tens of thousands of dollars.
