Hotel on Phillips
Adress: Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Listed in the National Register for Historic Places, Hotel Phillips was originally the Sioux Falls National Bank Building. Yearning for a place to do business that could properly reflect its local prestige, the bank’s leading officers decided to create a new headquarters in 1917. Selecting a lot in downtown Sioux Falls near the Big Sioux River, the bank hired the architectural firm Weary & Almond to construct the building. The lead architect for the project was Oscar Wentworth, a former director of the Office of the Supervising Architect of the United States Government. With help from the contracting company Pike & Cook, Wentworth spent the next year developing the nine-story skyscraper with designs inspired by the architectural aesthetics of the visionary John Sullivan. The building today stands as the only remaining example of this unique brand of architecture—known as Sulluvanesque—in all of Sioux Falls.
