"the first steel-framed skyscraper in Rochester. Arched windows add Neo-Renaissance styling to classical elements. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984." 1
The building was built by the Sibley company and housed their department store until the 1904 Sibley Fire, after which, the store moved to The Sibley Building.
