Isn't it a cool looking pillar?  Like a Roman column?  Sounds familiar and like I should know this... need more tea!

Ok, I did it.... 

Full Definition of pilaster : an upright architectural member that is rectangular in plan and is structurally a pier but architecturally treated as a column and that usually projects a third of its width or less from the wall.

Wikipedia says:  The pilaster is an architectural element in classical architecture used to give the appearance of a supporting column and to articulate an extent of wall, with only an ornamental function. It consists of a flat surface raised from the main wall surface, usually treated as though it were a column, with a capitalat the top, plinth (base) at the bottom, and the various other elements. In contrast to a pilaster, an engaged column or buttress can support the structure of a wall and roof above.

I would describe it almost as a "fake column".  A flat looking column actually applied to the building instead of free standing.
