Big towers. Probably the biggest for Sacramento ??
They look a bit retro but still very nice.

Def will be the biggest in Sacramento for now. There is another in the works that will prob reach about 650+, but that is still about a year from ground break.

They are doing demo right now on the xsisting building and plan to start escavation and pile driving in about a month. Est completion is mid-late 2007

all in all a nice addition to sacramento, a city which needs something new imo

Correct we didn't get taught anything but european capitols, I had to learn them all myself .

Anyway, I like these towers they are not overly spectacular, or overly high and should fit into the skyline very nicely .

I like it.The slant roof is nice and the glass cladding makes a cool contrast with the stone part of the facade.I just don't like the entrance of the building.

way to go sac-town. A couple more nearby, would give it a discernible skyline.
