Located on one of the corners of Plevnei Square, this apartment building dominates the whole area with its height. Until recently, the facade was decorated with two bas-reliefs depicting female figures, of which only one remains today.

In effect, the whole building is in a precarious state of preservation: from the tin tower rising over the square, to the iron work of the balconies and the texture details of the plastered facade, they all risk vanishing from the heritage of Timișoara.
