It is located between University Square and the Roman Square, at the intersection of Nicolae Balcescu Boulevard with Ion Campineanu Street. The block had 14 levels with stores and a cinema. The building had been designed with a reinforced concrete load-bearing structure by George Matei Cantacuzino and Vasile Arion.
