Built in the Chateau style to reflect the dominant Chateau Frontenac on the old town above the station, and adjacent to the railways station in a similar though less successful a treatment. The warm mellow tones of the brick contrast with the large expanse of steep copper roof while the stone accents around windows and doors provides solidity. Originally built to contain the Bureau de Poste and other federal functions.
