Built in the Eighties period in the Post-Modern style
Inspired by the set-back form of American skyscrapers, this building uses square windows, a brown brick texture, and a vertically emphasized curtain wall mid section and horizontal girders to give depth to the facade and to create a manhattan skyscraper effect. Similar to the style used by Daryl Jackson for 110 Collins and the CUI buildings also from the late 1980s and early 1990s post modern boom.
