The facade sections are articulated on the upper levels by slightly projecting stone piers with colored terra cotta detailing, with additional terra cotta bands in between the second and third floors, and between the third floor and cornice. The cornice has rounded elements above the building entrance bays and the center storefront bay, with keystones and more colored terra cotta.
