This large corner structure, built for the branch directorate of the Wiener Allgemeine Versicherung is most striking for its ornamentation: the corner ending in a rectangular addition is adorned with the anchor emblem of the company, and a pair of steel flagstaffs also with the same motif. Otherwise, the building is relatively traditional, with small window openings and expressive horizontal bands along the facade. Also worth noting are the long running balconies with modern pipe railing. Originally, the building contained the offices of the company along with flats.
