Description
• The tower resembles on the southeast side, a saw or tooth edge with six corners, which each floor has 9 corner offices, except at the very top one with sloped roof.

• A black metal sculpture of Louise Nevelson called "Dawn Shadows" is in plaza.

• It has a silver glass and white granite façade, while the interior is of a bright and airy 2-story lobby of white veneer granite with reflective glass columns.

• Its developers had planned a mirror building across the street to the south, but was changed to the 125-story Miglin-Beitler Skyneedle, also not built.
