Spanish Tower Homes-sm

Architect: J. Case & Peter Schreiner

Construction: 1927
LPC Action: Calendared 1990; Public Hearing 2010

The Spanish Tower Homes include 10 three- and four-story detached tan brick houses. The first floors of these dwellings have no windows and instead feature French doors that open on to wrought-iron balconettes. Some windows on upper floors have original wood shutters, and the corner houses feature fourth-floor loggias. These houses have shared driveways with detached garages in the rear. The Historic Districts Council has long felt these buildings were worthy of designation, both individually or as an extension to the existing Jackson Heights Historic District. HDC named Jackson Heights as one of our Six to Celebrate neighborhoods in 2011.
