120 Collins Street is a postmodern style building, paying homage to New York City's grand Art Deco buildings, such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. This influence can be seen in the building's granite fa├žade, its setbacks and its central mast.

When completed in August 1991, the building had a roof height of 220 metres with a 45-metre spire on top, bringing the total height to 265 metres. It surpassed the nearby and then-recently completed 101 Collins Street, by 5 metres. It was the tallest for fourteen years until it was surpassed by the Q1 in 2005. It remained the tallest building in Melbourne until being surpassed by the Eureka Tower in 2006. It is currently the third tallest building in Australia.
