Carter Horsley's Review of The Standish

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very handsome, Beaux Arts-style, 12-story building at 171 Columbia Heights between Clark and Pierrepont Streets in Brooklyn Heights was erected in 1903 as the Standish Arms Hotel with 122 rooms. It was originally designed by Frank S. Lowe.

It was acquired in 1981 by Jehovah’s Witnesses who sold it for $50 million in 2007 to Taurus Investment Holdings, who converted it into 90 rental apartments." Read Carter's Full Review
