Due to its location near the railway and Circular Boulevard, the Berkeley Bulding is a large 9-storey building on a rectangular plan with two recesses. The facades, made of prefabricated concrete panels, follow the architectural codes of many buildings of the 1970s. Also known as "architectural concrete", these load-bearing elements offer, despite their repetitive aesthetics, many advantages: solidity, durability and comfort.

As part of the renewal plan for La Défense, the building was partially demolished to undergo a new renovation and become an iconic building renamed Latitude.
