Ellicott Square Building


The Ellicott Square Building is a 10-story Italian Renaissance-style office building, built in 1896 at a cost of $3.5 million dollars. It was the largest office building in the world at the time of completion and features 299,000 square feet of rentable office space. The floors and sidewalks of the vestibules consist of mosaic and rare marble tiles, arranged to produce a rich and artistic color effect.

The most extravagant feature is the Central Court with a glass roof and mosaic floor.  In the center of the floor is a disc that displays the points of the compass surrounded by a chain, symbolizing the strength of business organization in the United States. Many social and political events are held in the Grand Court area, showing its elegance and grandeur.

Through the years, the building has undergone extensive improvements that have preserved the original architecture while adding many modern enhancements for energy efficiency, convenience, and safety.
