A Tribute: The Regal Constellation

Blog | Website | Google+ | Tumblr | 500px

 

I decided to go into the archives looking for images of the Regal Constellation since it now appears that demolition is nearing completion. This hotel was built in 1962 and was renovated as recently as 2001 but suffered a huge loss during the SARS crisis and by 2004 it had been sold off. There were plans for additions to the hotel, but nothing ever got done, even during the long demolition phase. It appears now that virtually everything there is gone. This is one of my favorite rooftop signs ever. Bye bye Regal.

 

Here's more from the Regal. Most images suck since I didn't know what the hell I was doing back then.
