Architectural Landmark

When the St. James Building was built on the site of one of the 19th Century’s most elegant hotels, it stood in the heart of New York’s wealthiest neighborhood just across from Delmonico’s.

The area around the St. James Building, now called NoMad, has been experiencing a huge surge in popularity and the St. James is once again surrounded by the some of the finest hotels, residences, restaurants in the city.

The St. James Building was designed by renowned architect Bruce Price, who designed many of the Canadian Pacific Railway‘s Château-type stations and hotels, including the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. The St. James Building is a striking combination of stone, brick, terra cotta, iron and copper in the Beaux Arts style with extensive detailing inside and out. One of its original treasures — a lobby mural painted by the famous French decorating firm of Arthur Brounet is maintained in its original glory, one of the few remaining of the dozens of originals that adorned Manhattan theatres, hotels and residences.

The St. James Building was extensively restored and technologically upgraded by Kew Management in the 1980s and 90s and was highly celebrated on its 100th birthday in 1996.
