Buhl Building - Photos

Built for the Buhl real-estate company in 1925, the 27-story, Neogothic-style structure features detailing created by sculptor Corrado Parducci.

Though the first four floors’ footprint is rectangular, the above floors form a cross to provide additional windows.

The private Savoyard Club lounge occupied the top floor of the Buhl building from 1928 to 1994, and then the space’s classy atmosphere was recreated through the street-level Buhl Bar taproom.
