Faits

  • The 26 stories were stacked with repeating ionic orders, and terminated the composition of horizontals with a classical cornice.
  • The ornate limestone facade was cantilevered from the floor girders with the main structural members placed within the pier faces protected from heat and moisture.
  • The speculative tower was little loved by critics, one of whom called it "perhaps the least attractive design of all New York's skyscrapers."
  • The slender tower of the St. Paul Building rose 315 feet above Broadway and Ann Street, filling a small five-sided lot.
  • After demolition, the three caryatids designed by Karl Bitter were taken to Indianapolis and now stand in Holliday Park. They were dedicated in 1977 and are now called "The Ruins".
  • The building was named after historic St. Paul's Chapel located across the street.
