This facade is one of the most distinctive in Wellington with prominent Art Deco decoration, particularly the sunburst motif between the second storey and parapet, while the parapet itself is interrupted by a series of striking vertical mouldings.

The building was designed by James Bennie and planned as a private hotel — York House. It was renamed The Vic in 1951.
