  • Bank of Hampton Roads (Richard Guy Wilson)

Originally named the Rotunda, this is the area's only cylindrical office building and, because of its top-heavy appearance, one of the least attractive. The unusual shape of the building initially generated some interest from the public, but the circular floor plan proved confusing to tenants, and the experimental design was not repeated.
