Facts

  • Demolished when Congress Parkway was extended through the block. The site is currently the south end of the block between Dearborn, Federal, Congress, and Van Buren.
  • An unusual decorative cornice of rectangular tracery ran behind the gable at the top. Its pattern consisted of 3 short rectangles alternating with one tall rectangle.
  • The top of the building had a Germanic stepped gable, projected as a front layer about one foot over a recessed façade. This was flanked by spiked hoods over the 2 bay windows, which ran up the north and south sides.
  • The lower three stories were clad in rusticated stone, and the rest of the façade in brick.
  • The building was abutted on the south by the Caxton Building, whose site was completely overtaken by the new highway.
