Armstrong Building

175 N King Street
Architect: Unknown
Style: Commercial

The Armstrong Building is a two-story bluestone lava rock building located at the corner of River Street and King Street. The building features multiple storefronts on the ground level with living quarters above, an arrangement that served as an archetype for other buildings in Chinatown.

In 1922, Lincoln L McCandless purchased the Armstrong building. This building had been home to Musashiya, a popular fabric store, until the most current owner moved the store to Ala Moana in the 60s. Koichiro Miyamoto, son of Musashiya's founder, created and marketed the first aloha shirt in 1935 in the Armstrong Building.
