The Pere Marquette Building is one of New Orleans' first skyscrapers. Designed as a high-rise building with a Gothic flair, the structure was built in 1925, and utilizes a tripartite, or 3-piece, design, in which the building is separated into three distinct sections. The lower three floors are emphasized by light-colored tile, the next 12 stories are done in a darker color, and the top three floors are separated from those by a light-colored string course. The building was named for Jesuit explorer and missionary Jacques Marquette, who, along with Louis Joliet, completely navigated the Mississippi River in the 17th century. The historic Pere Marquette Building was renovated and reopened as a luxury hotel (Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel) in 2001.
