Description
- The structure was originally completed as the 4-story Martin Brown Building in 1928 which replaced a dance hall which had burned down in 1927.

- A 17 story addition was added to this tower in 1955 when the Commonwealth Life Insurance Company purchased it, making it the tallest building in the city until the completion of The 800 luxury apartment building in 1963.

- Due to high costs of a potential renovation, the building was imploded on January 16, 1994.
