Lexington Place

101 Lexington - 1984

 

This small office building at the corner of W. 1st  and Lexington, features two levels of parking and two levels of office space.  The building itself is rather nondescript, but has a unique pyramid topped entrance tower at the corner of the structure.  This corner entrance is turned on a 30 degree angle instead of the standard 45 degrees.  It is in this manner that the building relates to both street grids of Downtown.  However, this building is not at the grid shift point, but a few blocks off of it.  The entrance is on axis with Collier Street that does not intersect with W. 1st or Lexington.  Since the entrance tower is two stories taller than the building, this tower is a focal point of the surrounding low rise apartment buildings.
