Facts

  • Before two stories were added to its top, the building appeared very similar in style and massing to the Rookery Building.
  • The original design featured round archways at the entrance and along the 6th floor, a projecting central section, cone-shaped finials at the upper corners, and a low peaked roof.
  • Replaced by the Transunion Building.
