The eleven-storey, limestone-clad reinforced concrete construction, built from 1927 to 1928 according to plans by German Bestelmeyer, is Leipzig’s first high-rise building. The bell beater sculp­tures by Josef Wackerle form the upper end. The pediment bears the inscription „Omnia vincit labor“ (work overcomes everything).
