Columbus Tower, also known as the Sentinel Building is a mixed-used building in San Francisco, California, completed in 1907. The distinctive copper-green Flatiron style structure is bounded by Columbus Avenue, Kearny Street and Jackson Street, straddling the North Beach, Chinatown, and Financial districts of the city. It is San Francisco Designated Landmark No. 33.

Despite the 1907 finish, building work had begun before the San Francisco earthquake the previous year, but extensive damage to the building site, and the rest of the city, slowed down the construction considerably. For a relatively small building such as Columbus tower, with the extensive workforce available in San Francisco at that time, taking more than a year to complete the building was slightly longer than would have been expected.

The top floor initially housed the headquarters of the notorious Abe Ruef, a local political figure at the time. Also featuring early in the building's history is the restaurant 'Caesar's', which is the restaurant widely credited with the creation of the popular Caesar Salad. dubious – discuss Despite its flourishing business, the restaurant was closed down during prohibition under the Eighteenth Amendment. The Kingston Trio owned the building and used it as their corporate headquarters during the 1960s. They built a recording studio in the basement which they used themselves and for many other artists including the We Five.

By the early 1970s the building was falling gradually into a state of mild disrepair. The film director Francis Ford Coppola chose then to purchase the building, and renovate it into the building that can be seen today. Coppola then set up his own business in the building, and remains there to this day.

Currently occupying much of the tower is Francis Ford Coppola's American Zoetrope studio.

Other tenants include independent public media producers for NPR and PBS, as well as independent sound designers for Pixar and Skywalker Sound, among others.

On the ground floor is the Cafe Zoetrope (previously Cafe Niebaum-Coppola), which has occupied part of the building since 1999. The cafe is a bistro and wine shop satellite of the Inglenook Estate Winery in the Napa Valley.

 

The Colonnade in the Yorkville neighbourhood was one of Toronto's first modern mixed-use building upon completion in 1964, combining retail and office space with a residential tower. Designed by architect Gerald Robinson (with Tampold & Wells) in the brutalist style, Patricia McHugh described the tower’s defining aesthetic feature as its "small concrete waffle grid".

(-Toronto Architecture, McClelland & Stewart, 1985).

Sept.5, 2016, about 2 1/4 hour fountain pen sketch.

Saw this view from a city bus and liked how it shows the smaller scale of 3-4 storey buildings on Pandora Avenue being overshadowed by brand new buildings of 12 to maybe 16 stories on Johnson street one block beyond.

The city is experiencing a construction boom and the scale of the city is changing quite a bit. Victoria is not going for tall slender towers like Vancouver, rather it is attempting a more European style of urban design with lower buildings trying to create street walls.

The immediate foreground of this sketch is an excavation pit with a new large mixed-use building going in, on the lower left are construction trailers on the street and raised above the sidewalk. I wanted to do a two-page panorama but this took a long time and I was getting cold and had to pee!

The Licking County Courthouse is a beautiful historic courthouse located in the town square of quaint downtown. The bordering mixed-use buildings create a well-defined central space and a cozy feel of the town square park which surrounds the courthouse itself.

  

The primary construction materials are limestone and sandstone, which create both heavily textured negative spaces as well as sturdy accent pieces. There are 11 identical Lady Justice sculptures that accompany each entrance. The large clock tower is centered in the symmetrical footprint and is on axis with Main Street, making it visually significant from much of downtown.

  

Downtown Newark has a distinctive charm with its colorful brick buildings, sturdy civic buildings, and classical gridded blocks. The courthouse is easily accessible from the town square and several restaurants and small shops are within walking distance.

Las Palmas by Benthem/Crouwel architects. This former warehouse building on Wilhelminakade has been revivified and renovated. Built in 1953 to a design by Van den Broek & Bakema, it spent several decades as a workshop building for the Holland America Line. It is the only surviving witness on Wilhelmina Pier of the period of post-war revolution in building and Rotterdam's rebirth as a city and for that reason is of great cultural-historical and architectural value. A thorough renovation of the existing cladding has reinstated its original ambience. The fully restored Las Palmas is a mixed-use building of cultural and commercial ends. It now houses the Nederlands Fotomuseum, a school of new media and a large events hall along with an exclusive fish restaurant and an array of companies. The building has been enlarged with a penthouse housing the headquarters of OVG, a real estate developer.

Historic "A" Mill located on Main Street in Northeast Minneapolis. The Expo mixed-used building nearing completion.

 

The Pillsbury A-Mill is a former flour mill located on the east bank of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It held the distinction of being the world's largest flour mill for 40 years. Completed in 1881, it was owned by the Pillsbury Company and operated two of the most powerful direct-drive waterwheels ever built, each capable of generating 1,200 horsepower (895 kW). The mill was named a National Historic Landmark in 1966 and has since been converted into resident artist lofts.

Longitude Building, Mann Island, Liverpool, England

 

This was by far my favourite building from my trip to Liverpool at the start of the year. I had never photographed in Liverpool before and was a refreshing experience with all these nice buildings around.

 

I originally intended to take this photo as long exposure but it didn't work out that way sadly and just a normal length exposure produced this result with these awesome fluffy clouds. It took my a right age to get the lines lined up as the building is slightly longer on one side, my camera was tilted quite a bit to one side in order to achieve it bang centre.

 

Talking about buildings, as promised I have written a blog post about Open House London. In it I share my experiences from the last 4 Open House events I have done and also share some of my favourite photos and venues that you should visit. Let me know what you think, link is below

One Central Park is an award-winning mixed-use building located in Sydney, Australia in the suburb of Chippendale.

 

Koichi Takada was commissioned with designing the east tower of One Central Park. He gave the apartments an organic feel that blended the outside foliage and gardens with the wooden interiors.

William Smart was appointed to style the west tower. Smart's designs, based on the idea of luxury that comes from high-end sports cars and motor yachts, used sophisticated curves and glossy finishes in the apartments in the west tower.

We have many buildings in Canada that are heritage designated for various reasons, but unfortunately for a lot of companies looking to develop these sites with higher density in mind, they tend to see these designations as a hindrance rather than an opportunity. Rightfully so, these companies are businesses after all and they need to make money, otherwise there would be no reason to redevelop a site in the first place. The problem is Heritage designation in Canada does not mean a whole lot. At best it protects the exterior of the building and at worst it only protects the facade which is only one exterior wall. We need to find a way to better protect the historical buildings in this country, otherwise one day we will wake up to find that particular part of history has been erased almost completely.

Hay's Galleria is a mixed use building in the London Borough of Southwark situated on the south bank of the River Thames featuring offices, restaurants, shops, and flats. Originally a warehouse and associated wharf (Hay's Wharf) for the port of London, it was redeveloped in the 1980s. It is a Grade II listed structure.

During the nineteenth century, the wharf was one of the chief delivery points for ships bringing tea to the Pool of London.[1] At its height, 80% of the dry produce imported to London passed through the wharf, and on this account the Wharf was nicknamed 'the Larder of London'

One image from the archives and one that I didn't think was salvageable, thats why its important to keep checking through your photos from time to time as you do find that odd image that you miss from time to time.

 

I had spent most part of this morning working on another image that I took yesterday around Scarborough but just wasn't really getting anywhere with it, no matter how I edited it I just didn't feel it was right so decided to leave it and try another photo, don't worry I will revisit that image sometime soon.

 

Anyone else get frustrating days like where you just can't get the editing right?

 

I hope your all having a good week so far!

Location Information

The Mann Island Buildings are a group of buildings in Liverpool, England currently under construction. They comprise three international style mixed use buildings on Mann Island, which lies on the waterfront between the Port of Liverpool Building and the Albert Dock.

 

Formerly rundown warehouses and dock buildings, the site directly between two of Liverpool's most historic buildings was heavily investigated before numerous proposals for new builds were submitted as part of a competition to create a 'Fourth Grace'. Three proposals were submitted, all of which received criticism for their appearance and contrast to the city's famed historic skyline.

 

The work of Alsop Architects was chosen to become the 'Fourth Grace', however, it was beset with difficulties, and was cancelled in 2004 due to spiralling costs. It was only after all of these ideas were scrapped when the £120 million Mann Island Development was chosen to become the new complex to occupy the site.

I didn't take many panoramic sequences in Shanghai, but this scene lent itself for a wide view. This was shot in front of the Shanghai Museum in People's Square. The Shanghai Municipal Government Building is in the center. The tall building on the left is Tomorrow Square and the tall one on the right is Shimao International Plaza. Both are mixed used buildings anchored by hotels on the upper floors. I didn't pay attention to the rotation angles for the shots and that shows in the un-symmetrical lines in the foreground.
