Long Description:
While its setbacks evoke Art Deco skyscraper architecture of the 1930s, its facade of precast concrete cladding and rectangular windows is mostly unadorned. It appears starkly simple, without contrasting elements. The only exception is the podium along Balmuto Street, which has black and grey granite cladding in an arrangement inspired by Art Deco architecture, but without artistic motifs or other ornamental elements. Its crown is a conventional box form without a spire.

As of 2015, it is the 30th tallest building in Toronto.
