For what it's worth, I've always thought the Jardine's HK building was particularly attractive but one man's trash another man's garbage, etc...

Has been for a few decades apparently as I remember this as a youngin crossing the Monroe street bridge (pre construction) to go to the old River Park Square. You should remember that era, probably the same time you lived in Spokane.

Good call on the Tschumi tower. Tasteless robotic smurf.

"The true irony in the story of this building is that only forty years before they tore the original down in 1967, several fire fighters gave their LIVES to save the city hall from a fire that otherwise leveled the entire downtown.
After they saved the building, Eisenhower huffed and puffed and blew it right down."
The Fall River City Hall has been undergoing a five-year, 16 million dollar renovation to repair failing building supports. Perhaps situating the entire building over interstate 195 was not such a good idea.
