On the site today is a rounded one-story structure that is connected to a much larger storage warehouse.

The awards program states that the building is 90 x 99 feet and uses the Larson system of continuous membrane waterproofing.

According to the award citation, the building is completely fireproof with building materials of gray glazed enamel brick, stainless steel columns,
