Description
Architect: Harrison & Abramovitz
Associate Architect: A. G. Odell Jr.
General Contractor: J. A. Jones Construction Co.
Cost: $5 million

Clad with 3,822 prismatic cast stone panels, each only 2.5 inches thick and 6 feet tall. Their quartz chips reflect light at different angles.

The building has 217,000 square feet of space in 15 floors. The building was designed with an 11,000 square foot banking lobby on the second floor, accessed by escalator or elevator. This floor had a 100 foot long banking counter and the ceiling was designed with an open grid.

Tower floors have 8,500 column free square feet of usable space. The elevators, stairs and restrooms are located in a smaller tower attached to the main tower by a glass clad hallway.

The windows are reversible, so they can be cleaned on both sides from inside the building.
