Historic detailing within the building has been retained through construction, such as bullnose plaster corners, terrazzo floors, unique wood-frame windows, and painted stencil detailing in the hallways.

The exterior is landscaped with trees, shrubs and garden seating. Paved parking is provided on-site.
