The Merchant´s Laclede building stands at the center of a large cluster of architecturally significant buildings that run from Walnut to Lucas Avenue, and are bounded by Broadway and Fourth Street.
The building is of Greek revival design, with beige granite on the first two floors and soft red sandstone and brick above. Its corner round tower with round glass is an important feature. Inside is white marble. The Newhard-Cook entrance to the building is Egyptian and is probably an addition.
