An early twentieth-century commercial premises, prominently located on the corner of Wicklow and Clarendon streets and dating from the rebuilding of parts of this street in this period. The ground floor has been heavily altered, but the upper floors are well preserved and well detailed in eclectic styling that is typical of the period. The building links the well-preserved streetscape of Wicklow Street with the largely rebuilt Clarendon Street, and contributes to the architectural character and streetscape of the south side commercial district.
