West and north sides

The building was deemed significant as an "excellent local example of an early Modern poured-in-place concrete building." It was planned during economic prosperity of the 1920s, but not completed until depression year 1930, in perhaps somewhat scaled-back form. It is located on Erie Boulevard, which into the 1920s was the route of the Erie Canal, and later was route of railroads.[2]

In May, 2010, signs on the building state it was available for sale or for net lease.
