The former Chamber of Commerce Building, six bays, eleven story, steel-framed bldg, classicizing, civic structure. Designed in 1922 by the nationally-known architectural firm Guilbert and Betelle, the brick and limestone-clad facade is divided into three horizontal parts. The multi-storied base is dominated by ornamental ironwork and an elaborate,Tennessee marble, door surround with figurative sculpture, including the twelve signs of the zodiac. The body, with its vertical strips of paired windows, is separated from the upper stories by a full entablature. The highly ornamented attic is articulated by columns, pilasters, and carved and travertine spandrels. A richly classicizing cornice with alternating modillions and paterae crowns the building. Lobby and elevators are original and retain their ornamentation.
