A stunning building on Portage Avenue, the Paris building is dramatically floodlit at night to accentuate its metal decoration. The building is a total contrast with many of the warehouses in the nearby Exchange District with its lack of heavy masonry walls. Unlike the Lindsay building by the same architects, the Paris Building seems much lighter because of the amount of reflective glass and metal panels which catch the light. The building is beautifully decorated especially on the top floor where the paired windows end with a metal panel under the projecting cornice.
