Pioneer Condominiums (Hotel Lubbock, Pioneer Hotel)

-A A +A
1926, Sanguinet, Staats and Hedrick; 1929, Wyatt C. Hedrick. 1204 Broadway St.

Nothing better demonstrates Lubbock’s aspirations to metropolitan status than the eleven-story Hotel Lubbock, built in two stages. Here, the imagery is Colonial Revival in red brick with white trim like the architects’ Hotel Texas (see FW11) in Fort Worth. The hotel was planned as a U-shaped block that permits maximum exposure for the guest rooms, a common formula for hotel design before the advent of air-conditioning. New owners in 2005 converted the vacant hotel to condominium use.

Across from the hotel at 1107 Avenue K is the two-story Dyke Cullum Building (1926, Peters and Haynes). It is detailed with arched ground-story openings, cast-stone relief plaques and spiral colonettes, and a hood that was originally faced with green Spanish roof tiles.
