Built in the Nineties period in the Post-Modern style
A complex building featuring a blend of modern and post-modern elements in an effort to be sympathetic to the surrounding streetscape (one of the first to be influenced by the new podium planning policies). Podium base featuring mock neo-classicism and chicagoesque styles is stretched by way of curtain wall massings which are divided into a vertically layered building which is crowned by a set of set-back cornices masking a flat post-modern renaissance styled roof and mock iron lace crown. Subtle detailing in the curtain wall glass evokes traditional square windows, and the effect is of an indecisively modern but elegant building.
