pretty old structure. Looks kind of like the Grant Building here built in 1928 or whenever.

6.5/10

It's cool how it hangs over the river like that. Otherwise, nothing too spectacular. ->6/10

Yes the building is pretty old. It was built in 1929. It was used as a blues recording station and also, for parties for quite a while.

Nothing special, where are the windows on the side of the building? Must be where the elevators are. 6/10.
