The original portion of 100 State Street was designed by Marcus T. Reynolds and constructed as an eight-story bank and office building for the Albany City Savings Institution in 1901-02.
From 1922-24, the building was expanded to the west with the addition of another six bays topped by a mansard roof and central tower.
The highly ornamental granite of the office building and terra cotta tower with cupola contribute to the stately presence of the building in downtown Albany.
