Although it does not contain the use of rusticated stone, the building is a good example of Richardson Romanesque office structure. The lower two floors are cut stone with a segmental arch entrance. The middle three floors are treated together and topped by six Romanesque arches. The final floor repeats the theme with 12 arches. The building is topped off with a balustraded parapet.
