This 22 floor tower was designed by the Office of Mies van der Rohe in their Iconic International Style. The firm Fujikawa Johnson and Associates was the Architect of Record. Typical of Mies designed towers, the high rise is an expression of a meticulously detailed curtain wall with a strong vertical emphasis. The curtain wall holds floor to ceiling glass. The building is now the home of Lathrop & Gage.
