About the building: The Lawrence Block, a group investment led by Judah Lawrence, was a four-story speculative retail and loft manufacturing space with seven storefronts. The 1868 cream city brick building was home to tenants including crockery merchants, garment manufacturers, milliners, notions, furs and more. The Guesthouse is a newly renovated 31-room hotel, designed by Vetter Architects and built by Pepper Construction, with communal spaces and shared kitchen on each floor of guest rooms.
