Met Ed Building

International Style, which began nationally in the 1920s, was used in York until the 1960s. Buildings with this design are usually square or rectangular, have a flat roof, use modern materials, and have very few details. Glass curtain wall is also a predominant characteristic, as are roofs without eaves. Locally, the Met-Ed Building on Parkway Boulevard was once a great example of this style. A faηade modernization occurred in the mid-1990s, though the accompanying picture pre-dates this renovation.
