Architecture

The structure is an eleven-story office building that rises 174 feet (53 m) above the ground. The Chicago architectural firm of D.H. Burnham and Company designed the building in the early Commercial style and it was completed in 1909. It is one of the earliest steel-framed buildings in Iowa. Elements of the Beaux-Arts style are found in the building's proportions and details, which is typical of the Burnham Company's work.
