The north elevation of the building also abutted another tall building at the time of construction, so the detailed terra cotta workmanship along the north side only extends for two window bays before a plain blank wall is indicated on the plans. However, on this view, the set-backs on the floors just below the clock tower are indicated with additional gold details. Lines along the side of the drawing denote the height in feet and inches for each of the floors and the clock tower. The total height of the building is 235 feet, well above the 150-foot limit imposed on buildings by the City of Los Angeles.
