Abstract

Except for the Floridan Hotel, this building, from 1926, is the tallest of the 1920s structures still standing. It is in many respects like the Chicago School's skyscrapers of the 1880s and 90s in its straightforward base-shaft-capitol treatment of the facade, with groundfloor mezzanine banking area and arched top windows, and with its brick and terra-cotta cladding of the steel frame. But the base especially is a concession to the Renaissance Revival style. The south and west sides are, alas, not as nice, but even the Chicago School's Louis Sullivan usually gave only two sides of a building his extensive detailing. This is a view from the east. Title supplied by cataloger. Description supplied by Sape A. Zylstra.
