The Commerce Building, currently more widely known as the Star Financial Bank Building (or Star Building), is at 127 West Berry Street in downtown Fort Wayne. The Beaux Arts style 13 story, 177' tall building was constructed in 1923, and was the tallest commercial building in Fort Wayne until the Lincoln National Bank Tower (one block east) was constructed in 1929-30.

No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm … that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.
