This building is testament to the historic role Glendale in aviation.  
From Wikipedia:

Grand Central Airport, Glendale, California, also known as Grand Central Air Terminal (GCAT), was an important facility for the growing Los Angeles suburb of Glendale in the 1920s. It was also a key element in the development of United States aviation. The terminal, located at 1310 Air Way, was built in 1928 and is still there. Owned since 1997 by the Walt Disney Company, it remains as one of four remaining standing structures (the other three are hangars), and sole surviving witness, to the area’s historic significance, and is in urgent need of restoration and repair.
