Building History Detail
Continental Plaza

A twelve story reinforced concrete bank and office building built for Continental Bank and Trust Co. The exterior columns of the building taper from 3x9 feet at the ground level to a slimmer profile at the top making the building appear more monumental. The concrete surfaces were sandblasted to expose the rounded stones of the aggregate and to provide a unique look to the building. The building has dimensions of 120x100 feet. It was formerly known as the West Side Bank which was located in the Sydney Hih building on 3rd and Juneau.
