The main facade contains four symmetrical entrances, including two basement entrances, directly under the first floor entrances. The doors are wood glazed with aluminum storm doors.

The two brick chimneys are located on the east side of the side-gabled roof.

Historical Background - This house was constructed in 1930 on the site of a house which was built around 1903. The current structure has served as a multiple dwelling since it was constructed. The Sanborn Maps show a house at 1516 9th Avenue was there from 1906 through 1927. After 1927, the maps show another house placed on top of the original house, suggesting the current house was built after 1927, probably around 1930. Emil Hatch was the proprietor of Hatch Apartments and lived in 1518 9th Avenue from 1931-1933. Other residents in 1931 included John R. King, Ralph Clarkson and Howard Lair. Emil Hatch was also a lawyer with his office in the First National Bank building.
