There are two comments.

  What were the architects thinking? The exterior is not a blending but an incompatible clash of styles, neither sympathetic nor complementary to the other. i like both of the parts, but TOGETHER? Doesn't work.The interior (above the first floor) is definitely grade "B". Unimaginative design - even poor in the bathrooms-, low cost materials installed poorly, and unfortunately minimally maintained.

  This building exhibits a very nice blending of ornate early 20th century style masonry facade at the main lobby entrance with late 20th century steel and glass. I like it very much.
