The band at the bottom of the arch, separating it from the building's identifier, is filled with triangular shapes. The building's name is written on polished marble, and it reads "SINCLAIR BUILDING." There are two sets of double doors below this, each with large metal kickplates. Shrubs sit in pots on either side of the entrance. There are multiple plaques on the walls by the arch, along with a sconce light.
