Designed by Claud Beelman, the thirteen-story Eastern Columbia Building with its turquoise terra-cotta and gold leaf exterior exemplifies the Art Deco Zigzag Moderne movement. SGH investigated cracked and spalled cladding and developed a restoration program as part of the property's rehabilitation and adaptation for reuse as condominiums.
