The Coca Cola Bottling Plant is part of a group of buildings located at “Four Corners” historic commercial center, situated at the intersection of two primary highway corridors existing in Lafayette before the 1960s. The Four Corners area served as the gateway to Lafayette from before the mid 1800s to the late 1960s, and remains a gateway to the city today. Four Corners was one of three main retail centers for Lafayette’s early suburbs, especially between 1940 and 1960. Some of the historic subdivisions that were served by Four Corners were the 1927 West End Heights, 1928 Souvenir Heights, 1928 Comeaux Place, 1928 Cornay Additions, also called the Saint Streets, and 1947 Oak Lawn Subdivision. The Coca-Cola Bottling Plant building is built with steel and brick and included office space, a bottling plant, and a warehouse. It is the only remaining historic building complex still standing at Four Corners commercial center. The Modern architectural elements of the main building include simple geometric massing, an asymmetrical front façade, and a horizontal focus which is achieved with bands of windows on both floors, windows turning one corner, coupled with projecting horizontal concrete window sills and headers.
