Quadrant corner with Rawson Place. Gaisby Rock ashlar elevations, one bay to Rawson Place, 3 to John Street. The corner is emphasised by a 5-storey circular tower, the top stage consisting of a drum with 4 pairs of Corinthian columns, the entablatures surmounted by urns and a finely balanced masonry dome above with a cupola lantern. The tall 3-storey and attic flanking elevations have giant Corinthian columns with block banding to base of shafts. Shallow canted bay windows on first floor and large lunette window above segmental portal entrance. Pedimented dormers in parapet with urns in line with columns below. The windows are stone mullioned. Important corner site, listed in particular for the contribution made by the tower to the townscape.
