Constructed between 1974 and 1977, the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB) Building is a fine example of Post-War office building construction by the General Services Administration (GSA), which was guided during the 1970s by initiatives to improve the quality of federal building design while enhancing the vitality of government-owned urban public space. The building was designed by the architecture firm of Max O. Urbahn Associates, with landscape design by Sasaki Associates. Architecturally, the FHLBB Building reflects the influence of both the prevailing mid-century International Style and the late-modernist Brutalist Style, placing it within the evolving aesthetic of the modern movement during the 1970s.
