This building is composed of two four-story masses which embrace a three-story center of dark glass. Brick applied to the side masses is seen to be a veneer due to the lack of corner quoins. Marking the top is a band of differently patterned brick; otherwise only three vertically aligned rectangular vents mark the sides. The glass center is held five feet off the ground and is one story lower than its sides of brick. Striated with bands of concrete reflecting the floor levels and vertical black mullions, the glass allows southern light to flood the honeycombed offices. In 1987 Holt Architects, an Ithaca firm, designed the two floors added to the top of the building. They replicated the lower floors, although the dark glass on the new stories is patterned with black and white panels and vertical black mullions, instead of the concrete bands which indicated the floor levels on the lower stories. A large strip of windows breaks the brick skin on the sixth floor.
