Facts

  • Planned as a 16-story building to be built in two phases.
  • The first phase consisted of a 7-story building that opened in 1960. It was built with a foundation and frame designed to support the addition.
  • A 9-story addition was completed in 1967. Despite the fact that Pacific Telephone publicly announced their intentions in 1958 to eventually build an addition, the city tried to block it because it would cut off sunlight to St. Mary's Square.
  • The building at the time was welcomed as a modern addition to the city. Ironically, many consider it an eyesore today.
