Typical of mid-1950s commercial/industrial buildings, this features yellow-Roman-brick walls, banded aluminum windows that illuminate the principal spaces, a vertical-ribbon window of glass blocks on the east end of the south elevation that illuminates the staircase, and a stainless-steel canopy over the entrance. Built as a supply company for jewelry and general industrial needs, the building was converted to professional use in 2007 for the architectural firm DBVW Architects, which occupies the top floor. The building renovation included numerous green and sustainable design elements.
