Unusual skyline identityMBank, the new name for Mercantile National Bank, commissioned Johnson to design a symbol of their success--with a prominent skyline identity. This pink granite tower has one and half million square feet. After such hubris, the building has changed hands several times. The roofs are barrel-vaulted. The six-story base has an impressive barrel-vaulted entry. (Sorry, I don't have any photographs of it.)
