The History of St. George Plaza

The common name is Temple Hotel and the historic names are the Hotel St. George and Hotel Dorion. The building was developed in four distinct episodes between 1900 and 1937:

1900 – Floors 1-2, main building
1903 – Floor 3, main building and Floor 1, East addition
1927 – Floors 2-4, East addition
1937 – Floors 4-6, main building
The building best conveys the district’s secondary historic period and consists of three volumes, including a six-story Art Deco style building on the corner of Main Street and Emigrant Avenue; a four story Italianate style addition fronting Emigrant Avenue. The building contributed significantly to the district since its initial construction in 1900, but its penultimate configuration is a striking reflection of the fashionable modernity of the automobile age. By far the tallest building in the district, it nonetheless continues traditional building patterns of the historic period in its formal façade organization with strip pilasters, corbelled belt cornice and parapet-wall articulated as a blind arcade. The Art Deco elements are the principal ground story façade and colossal, rusticated corner pilasters.
