Collins created a liberal interpretation of Romanesque Revival for this building that occupies a major corner in downtown. Like the Clock Tower Building, it turns the corner with a rounded tower, but here the tower has a fourth floor capped with a conical roof. Each side of the brick building has a two-bay arcaded rough-faced stone storefront, and the corner entrance is recessed behind a robust single column. The building finishes firmly at each end with windows set in a two-story-high arch and a pediment. The upper floors of this exuberant building housed Collins's architectural offices.
