NOCA MODERN Architect Detail

Body of Work:

(b. 1877 – d. 1951) Born in Chicago and educated at the City College of New York, architect Leonard Schultze spent 20 years with the architecture firm of Warren & Wetmore, where he worked on the design of New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. He joined partnership with S. Fullerton Weaver in 1921, creating a multidisciplinary firm, Schultze and Weaver. Schultze and Weaver designed New York City’s opulent Waldorf-Astoria, and the architectural firm was well-known nationwide for its design of large apartment buildings, hospitals, schools, and clubs, as well as office buildings. As the firm evolved into Schultze & Associates, Schultze was instrumental in the design of a number of large-scale residential developments, including Parkfairfax in Virginia with Clarke & Rapuano, Park La Brea in Los Angeles and, most notably, Parkmerced in San Francisco with Thomas Church.
