Stanley Bodek and Alex Cook, both 1977 graduates of the University of Pennsylvania, installed the Rodeo Drive sign on a real estate project at Lancaster Avenue and 39th Street in the early 1980's.

During their ownership, the building served as an abandoned gas station, an accountant's office, a detective agency and a speakeasy.

Bodek and Cook sold the building to Mai in the early 1990's.
