The Grove Court Apartments are an excellent illustration of an International Style apartment complex and are the only example documented in Montgomery. They display all of the typical elements of the style. Only a few other International Style buildings have been identified so far in the city. Among the other examples are several office buildings and a hospital. The Hill Building, at the northwest comer of Perry and Washington Streets, and the Professional Center Hospital, at the southeast comer of Church and Catoma Streets, have both been demolished. Grove Court is one of the best remaining examples of the International Style in the state and is one of only two large apartment complexes documented in the style, the other being the Legarde Apartments in Anniston.
