First New Haven National Bank, New Haven, CT

IMG_6190

The First New Haven National Bank building is located at One Church Street, at the corner of George Street. It is a monolithic corporate office tower, somewhat out of place with its lower neighbors but helping to bridge the gap in scale with the 23-story Knights of Columbus Tower to the south. It was built in 1960 by the Office of Douglas Orr, who was a prolific local architect in New Haven during the post war years and also worked on the nearby Community Services Building.
