Designed by renowned architect Cass Gilbert, this vibrant structure, faced with pale pink granite, multi-hued brick,, and colored terra cotta, is a distinctive interpretation of the Beaux-Arts style popularized by the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Constructed in 1899-1900, the three-part vertical structure alludes to the classical column, and its lush ornamentation is typical of the classically-inspired style. Still used as a commercial office building, it was the first of Gilbert's design to be executed in New York City.
