The glassy office tower's most distinctive feature is its recessed crown. The top of the building is illuminated white at the corners, as well as other various colors depending on the holiday.

In 1989, the same combination of developer (The Beitler Company) and architect envisioned the Miglin-Beitler Skyneedle nearby. The 2,000 foot (610 m) and 125 story building would have been the tallest skyscraper in the world if completed, but plans were scrapped because of a sluggish real estate market.
