Royal Edward Arms

108 May Street South
Constructed: 1929
Architect: Dorr & Dorr

The Royal Edward Arms, known formerly as the Royal Edward Hotel, was constructed in the Art Deco style. This style consisted of angular, geometric and stylized details placed on very boxlike buildings. The jagged profile of this building emphasizes its verticality and the height of eight stories. The hotel was constructed using the slipped form method of concrete pouring, wherein the forms are raised and reused as the previous floor sets. This hotel was renowned for its luxury, and has hosted many important guests, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
