The building was designed by Horatio Nelson White (1814-1892) in the Second Empire style and completed in 1867. It was built of limestone quarried on Onondaga Nation territory and then finished in a stone yard where the Dey Brother's previously resided.[4]

The address of the Gridley Building is 101 S. Salina Street, according to the 1970 National Register of Historic Places nomination form.[3] Five years later, the Hanover Square Historic District nomination listed its address as 101 East Water Street.[2]

The Syracuse Savings Bank Building is located directly across Erie Boulevard.
