From its completion in 1972 until the completion of the 275-foot (84 m) One City Hall Plaza at 900 Elm Street, it was the tallest building in the U.S. state of New Hampshire and in northern New England.[1] The building is recognizable as a box-shaped structure, with black tinted windows and black architectural features.

Hampshire Plaza has an urban mall attached, which has a single story of offices and storefronts and an indoor parking garage with several levels underneath. Hampshire Plaza is also attached by a skybridge to an indoor parking garage on an adjacent block. The high-rise was originally built by Public Service Company of New Hampshire (PSNH), the electric company that serves most of New Hampshire (now a subsidiary of Northeast Utilities).
