Baltimore MD United States 21201
The Bank of America Building, also known as 10 Light Street and formerly as the Baltimore Trust Company Building, is a 34 story, 155.15m skyscraper located at the corner of East Baltimore and Light Streets in downtown Baltimore, Maryland.Description10 Light Street was the tallest building in the state, and the tallest office building in the United States south of New York City when constructed in 1929. The Art Deco building was designed by the firm of Taylor and Fisher, and completed in eighteen months, fashioned from Indiana sandstone and local brick over a steel frame at a cost of (U.S.) $3 million.The building's exterior is decorated with carved Romanesque human and animal images, stylized eagles, and is capped with a copper and gold roof. The ornate, two-story main banking lobby is highly decorated with mosaic floors designed by Hildreth Meiere, and historic murals by Griffith Baily Coale and McGill Mackall on historic themes: the Baltimore fire of 1904, and the writing of the National Anthem at the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812. These murals are planned to be covered by artificial turf, so that the historic lobby can be used as an Under Armour gym.
