Description 

The building is seven-stories tall and rises 102 feet (31 m) above the ground.[2] Seven construction workers were killed in 1913 when the top two floors collapsed during construction. The building was completed the following year. It housed a millinery company named the Lyman Company until the building was bought and renamed in 1933. (Wikipedia)
