Stewart Title (now Amerischools)
by Alfred Newman Beadle

Rendering of The Executive Building by Al BeadleThis office structure, still standing on West Camelback Road at 13th Avenue, was engineered to be six stories high, with the top four stories being set back from the 8-foot cantilever. Like Executive Towers, the building floats several feet above ground. Footings 8 to 10 feet deep anchor the building with poured in place concrete columns and floors. The front is faced with extensive sliding glass doors, and the east, west, and south block walls are reported to be merely curtain walls.Stewart Title building by Al BeadleThe breezeblock grille is consistent with similar mass/void alternating motifs used at White Gates and at Day-O Apartments. The block pattern itself is one not commonly found in Beadle's repertoire. It is described in a vintage article as being made of "frame and plaster", presumably like White Gates was.Amerischools by Al BeadleThe grille has been removed, and it is now the site of an Amerischools campus near 15th Avenue and Camelback Road.
