More on The United States National Bank in Galveston at  2201 Market St. This comes from Galveston's newspaper The Daily News this week (behind pay-wall):


 

Major makeover: In other island luxury apartment news, crews are expected to begin demolition work in the 12-story United States National Bank Building, 2201 Market St. downtown, as part of a $14.9 million renovation that will yield 64 luxury apartments.
 

Along with high-end apartments, developer Hadar Goldman plans to add a rooftop event center with a bar and pool, along with a street-level spa, wellness center and yoga studio. Previous street-level tenants already have moved.
 

The building would offer all the modern amenities, while respecting Galveston history and tradition, Goldman said. Frost Bank will continue to lease the second and third floors of the building, while Kempner Capital Management will remain on the 12th floor, Goldman said. Principals of Kempner Capital Management have a long history with the building, inspiring Goldman to allow the firm a lease for as long as it wants one, he said.
 

There’s a historic significance to the Kempner Capital Management continuing as a tenant, Goldman said.
 

The Kempner family originally owned the controlling interest in United States National Bank, an outgrowth of a savings bank in which wholesale grocer, cotton broker and real-estate investor H. Kempner acquired an interest in 1885, according to the Galveston Architecture Guidebook. Kempner’s sons bought a controlling interest in the bank in 1902, and in 1923, one of them, Daniel W. Kempner, directed planning and construction of the modern office building, according to the guidebook.
 

“The height of the U.S. National Bank Building signaled to W.L. Moody Jr., the Kempner brothers’ business rival, their determination not to take second place to his 11-story American National Insurance Building at 21st and Market,” according to the guidebook. The Moodys in the 1970s went on to build a 23-floor skyscraper downtown.
 

Alfred C. Bossom with Sanguinet, Staats & Hedrick was the architect of the building, completed in 1925 and known for its dark granite base, smooth limestone facing, tall arched windows separated by Corinthian pilasters and a clock face above the pediment-capped corner, according to the guidebook. The building was rehabilitated by island architect David Watson in 1990.
 

Renovation of the building has been years in the making and Goldman has amassed what he calls a “superteam,” which includes architect Watson; general contractor Larry Brown Construction; and Adam Halifi, who will lead the demolition, Goldman said. In a note of irony, Moody Bank is financing renovation of the building, which has long housed Frost Bank, Goldman said.
 

Crews will be sensitive in demolition to preserve the building’s history, said Goldman, who acquired the building for cash nearly seven years ago.

“I’ve been working with this so long, it’s worth it,” Goldman said.
 

On Thursday, a $200,000 temporary construction elevator will arrive at the site to take everything up and down, said Goldman, who has holdings in Tel Aviv, the United Kingdom and Chicago.
 

The building will be equipped with all the modern technology, Goldman said.

I only glanced over the website, so I didn't take a deep dive to find an estimated completion date.

Update on the United States National Bank in Galveston at  2201 Market St.

From Galveston's newspaper The Daily News this week (behind pay-wall):


 

Did anyone else notice the plywood crews last week put atop the United States National Bank Building in the island’s downtown? Crews installed the temporary mockup to allow state and federal organizations to determine whether a glass wall would diminish the visual effect of the historic building, 2201 Market St., island architect David Watson said.
 

A glass wall is planned to surround a rooftop event center at the 12-story building, where developer Hadar Goldman plans 64 luxury apartments, street-level retail and a wellness center.
 

The glass wall is meant to block the wind at the rooftop event center, but must be approved by the National Park Service and Texas Historical Commission, organizations that regulate preservation practices.
 

To give the service and the commission perspective of the glass wall’s visual effect, Watson and team last week planned to video record the plywood mockup from the corner of The Strand and 22nd and from 20th and Market streets.
 

They will present the video to the park service and historical commission in a conference call and wait for feedback. If the agencies don’t approve, then Goldman, who has said he’s committed to honoring the building’s history, will regroup and adjust plans for the building’s rooftop, Watson said.
 

Alfred C. Bossom with Sanguinet, Staats & Hedrick was the architect of the building, completed in 1925 and known for its dark granite base, smooth limestone facing, tall arched windows separated by Corinthian pilasters and a clock face above the pediment-capped corner. Watson rehabilitated the building in 1990.
 

Frost Bank will continue to lease the second and third floors of the building, while Kempner Capital Management will remain on the 12th floor, Goldman said.

Meanwhile, the exterior construction elevator arrived last week. That elevator also is temporary, Watson emphasized.
