What style would this be?

Could any of you tell me which historical period is this building trying to emanate?

I would say Neoclassicism (revival), probably built past WWI.

Correct.

It was built between 1924 and 1928.

And it does look neoclassical, I was just thinking whether it contained elements of, I don't know, Italian high Renaissance or something like that.

That is Beaux Arts, if you ask me, a scholastic approach to the older styles. Doesn't it has too much of a French decorative touch to be neo-classical?

It certainly has classical elements but the style would be generally considered Beaux Arts. Beaux Arts was a style of architecture that was extremely popular in the late 19th c and lasted until the 1920's. It incorporated classical elements and unlike some recent efforts, the architects concerned were schooled in the correct way of how to use these elements, thus they are highly successful designs that add prestige to any city. I would be interested to know if this building still exists and where it is.

No doubt that it is completely Beaux Arts brosephus and also has elements of neo clacism with those columns.

Heres a good example of a Beaux Arts building. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palais_Garnier

And one of the most famous Beaux Arts buildings here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Central_Terminal
