Point Park University’s Lawrence Hall will be designated a historic landmark Thursday by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation.
The building has been owned by Point Park since 1967 and underwent a major renovation in 2005.

Lawrence Hall, on Wood Street, Downtown, originally was built as the Keystone Athletic Club in 1928 and later became the 21-story Sherwyn Hotel.

The historic landmark plaque will be unveiled at 10 a.m. at the main entrance to the hall.

The foundation began its program of identifying architecturally significant structures and landscapes in 1968.
