St. Ignatius Academy

1206 Throckmorton St. - 1888-89 (NR, RTHL)

 

This building is one of the more unique buildings in Downtown. Although, it complements the neighboring St. Patrick Cathedral, this building is of the French Second Empire style. It is also similar to the City National Bank Building in Sundance Square with its mansard roof; however, St. Ignatius has a cupola tower in the center of its cross-shaped plan. Currently, the building is being restored.
