Jackson Building

The Jackson Building, in Downtown Asheville, was completed in 1924. At 15 stories, it was the first skyscraper in Western North Carolina. It was built by architect, Ronald Greene in the Neo-Gothic style. Greene also designed the adjacent Westall Building. According to Wikipedia, the observation tower had a 400x telescope and an 18 million candlepower searchlight intended to attract tourists.

I combined eight shots for this panorama. Also, I used a trick in Photoshop Lightroom to turn the street lights on. Notice the interesting gargoyles on the upper corners of the building.
