Carrère and Hastings
Carrère and Hastings were two of the most significant American architects of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, designing more than 600 buildings through the U.S. and beyond. In 1885 Flagler initiated a grand scheme to turn Florida into the "American Riviera" and St. Augustine into the "Winter Newport." The Hotel Ponce de Leon (1885-1887), now Ponce de Leon Hall at Flagler College (National Register, 1975; National Historic Landmark, 2006), was the first and the flagship of Henry Flagler's resort empire. This palatial Spanish Renaissance Revival hotel is nationally significant as it was the first commission for Carrère & Hastings and is America's first large cast-in-place concrete building. The other Carrère and Hastings projects included in this project are the Memorial Presbyterian Church (1889-1890) (NR 1983) and the Hotel Alcazar (1888-1889) (NR 1971)."
