KATZ Architecture has been retained to renovate the lobby of the Hotel St. George, located in Brooklyn Heights. Once the largest hotel in NYC, the St. George Hotel drew celebrities, athletes, and presidential hopefuls to its many ballrooms and largest indoor salt-water pool in the US. Built in various phases between 1885 and 1929, the structure has served a number of uses. The lobby under renovation is located at the base of a 30 story tower converted to co-op residences in 1984.
