320 South Boston Building: Classic and Stately
Bricks and mortar additions cause buildings to grow in size, and as they grow, they establish a special identity and character. So it is for the 320 South Boston Building. This stately building with its classical Beaux Arts façade was designed by architect George Winkler in 1917. The north wing at 12 stories was originally the Exchange National Bank. This name and date are captured in intaglio letters at waist height in the limestone facing of the north (Third Street) elevation. In 1923, the 12-story south wing was added. This wing was almost a match to the north wing except for ground floor window treatment and a narrower dimension in the east-west direction. (The north wing has dramatically-tall arched windows.) The south wing is also significantly horizontally shorter than the north.
