The Holtz House is a mixed use pre-war condo located in the heart of the Flatiron District riddled with history. In the early 1900’s Phillip Braender commissioned architect William C. Frohne to design a 12-story building, with the lower two floors being specifically customized and designed to house for the Holtz Restuarant. The Holtz was a high-end establishment catering to the upper echelon of the population which The New York Times once referred to as “one of the finest appoinments in the city.” Inspired by French architecture the brick and stone structure was embellished with Beaux Arts appointments.
The restaurant opened in 1908 and soon the building was filled with commercial tenats including including manuafacturers of ostrich feathers, lace curtains and costumes all occupied the building.
Despite the original restaurant roots of the building, the bottom floor is now occupied by Waterworks. The building omprised of two units per floor (commercial on 1-4, residential 5-12), has maintained it’s unique sense of intimacy.
