The skyscraper stands at 127 m or 30 stories tall and was completed in 1972. When the tower was built, on the site of the former second Hotel Vancouver, its black-glass facing earned it the press sobriquet "the Black Tower", and with the white design of the adjacent Eaton's building (now Nordstrom) it was considered by some an architectural disaster.[1]

The first tenant in January 1972 was the law firm of McLaughlin, Holburn & Beaudin on the 16th floor. The firm (now named Alexander Holburn Beaudin & Lang LLP) has remained a tenant since opening and currently occupies the topmost floors.

Since 1996, the building has been the home of Corus Radio Vancouver, as well as a number of law firms, including Farris LLP, Alexander Holburn Beaudin & Lang LLP, Cansure and QAlaw. The Downtown Vancouver Optometry Clinic is also a tenant.
