Notable features

A faceted building featuring a mixture of curtainwalled surfaces and solid stone-like concrete with corbusian window motifs. A large base podium confirms to Nineties planning policies. Originally planned with a spire but never realised. Even without the spire, the building is a stunning post-modern statement, taking design keys from the stepped forms of 1920s North American deco towers.
