Located on a primary thoroughfare in Lincoln Park, this building is designed to fit comfortably into its urban context in its massing and use of materials. Although it is a relatively large building, its facade is designed as a series of smaller components that are visually appropriate in proportion and scale. The brick structure with its masonry detailing and limestone base is reminiscent of many of the surrounding buildings built after the turn of the century.

This building is uniquely located on the edge between a single-family residential area and Glencoe's business district. The facade facing Park Avenue reflects the features of many of Glencoe's retail buildings along the same street, while traditional gabled roof forms and red brick were utilized to bestow a residential character to the remainder of the building. Arched limestone entries, transom windows, and iron railings and gates all adhere to the aesthetic qualities and contextual fabric of Glencoe.
